Helping You Preserve Your Sight
Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects approximately 3.3 million people in Canada. This condition prevents the body from creating or using insulin effectively. Diabetes can significantly affect your sight, even putting you at risk of vision loss.
Visit us in North Toronto, and we can help protect your eye health and vision. We are experienced with diabetes and eye conditions related to it, helping identify problems in their early stages.
How Does Diabetes
Affect Your Eyes?
Diabetes can damage your eyes and vision when your blood sugar is too high. It can cause temporary blurry vision, trouble focusing, or long-term damage if left unaddressed.
High blood sugar can damage the blood vessels in your retina, which is essential for helping you see. If these blood vessels become damaged, they can swell and leak, significantly affecting your vision. We recommend anyone with diabetes has an annual eye exam to help protect their sight from diabetes-related complications.
Common Diabetes-Related Eye Diseases
Patients with diabetes are at risk of diabetes-related eye problems, known as diabetic eye disease. Diabetic eye disease is a general term for any eye problems that develop because of diabetes, such as diabetic retinopathy or diabetic macular edema.
How We Check for Diabetic Eye Disease
We use several diagnostic technologies to help diagnose diabetic eye disease. These tools let us identify subtle changes in your vision and early signs of eye problems.
Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer
Optos California With Autofluorescence
Optical Coherence Tomography
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging tool for capturing retinal images. We can examine these photos to measure the thickness of your retina and identify signs of retinal disease.
Do Not Delay Your Eye Health
Never leave things to chance with your eye health and vision. Proper management of your diabetes can help prevent potential complications and vision loss. With our help, we can help identify visual changes and eye problems as early as possible.
