Eye Screening in Clermont
If you have diabetes, either type one or type two, it certainly is not news to you that the disease can have an impact on you in many ways. It affects your circulation and can cause neuropathy. It also can impact your eyes through a condition called diabetic retinopathy. Here at Clermont Family Eyecare, the well-being of your eyes is foremost to us and that's why we offer our eye screening in Clermont
. If you have diabetes, we will test you for signs of diabetic retinopathy, which is a serious disease that can lead to serious damage to your optic nerve, cause vision loss, possible blindness, and in the most extreme cases, even death. It is not our intention to frighten you. That is a rare occurrence, but it is within the realm of possibility, especially if you don't get regular eye exams and ignore potential warning signs.
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in adults, but it doesn't have to be. With our eye screening in Clermont annually, you will be in a position to have our eye doctor diagnose the problem before any serious issues have occurred. It's important to keep in mind that like with many eye diseases, diabetic retinopathy forms and progresses without any clear warnings. This is why it is so important to come in regularly. By the time you realize there is something wrong, it is usually because you have suffered some degree of vision loss or damage to your eye, either of which might not be reversible.
Symptoms that you should be aware of and which would indicate that this disease has become advanced are floaters (spots in your field of vision), blurred vision, problems in perceiving colors, and any loss of vision, however minimal. If you do notice any of the above, call us immediately and schedule our eye screening in Clermont
With comprehensive testing, a diagnosis will be confirmed. Treatment options depend on the severity of the disease at the time it is identified. This can range from just getting your blood sugar levels stable to laser surgery to prevent blood from leaking into your eyes. Call us now and make an appointment for our eye screening in Clermont
. Your eye health depends on it.
