At Eye Specialists of Ohio, we understand that your vision is precious, and we are dedicated to providing comprehensive eye care services to all our patients. If you are living with diabetes, it’s essential to be aware of the potential impact on your eyesight, particularly diabetic retinopathy. We are here to help you navigate this condition with expert care and personalized attention.

Understanding Diabetic Retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy is a serious eye condition that affects individuals who have diabetes. High blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels in the retina, the light-sensitive tissue located at the back of your eye responsible for transmitting visual information to your brain. As the disease progresses, these damaged blood vessels can leak or bleed, leading to various vision problems and, in severe cases, vision loss.

The Importance of Regular Eye Exams.

If you have diabetes, regular eye exams are crucial for early detection and effective management of diabetic retinopathy. Our team of skilled eye specialists utilizes advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to assess the health of your retina and promptly identify any signs of diabetic retinopathy. Early detection is key to preventing further damage and preserving your vision.

Advanced Treatment Options:

We stay at the forefront of medical advancements and offer a range of cutting-edge treatment options for diabetic retinopathy, including:

  • Laser Photocoagulation: This procedure uses laser energy to seal leaking blood vessels and prevent further damage to the retina.
  • Intravitreal Injections: Medications are injected into the eye to reduce swelling and stop abnormal blood vessel growth.
  • Vitrectomy: In severe cases, a vitrectomy may be recommended to remove blood and scar tissue from the eye.
  • Anti-VEGF Therapy: This treatment involves injecting anti-VEGF medications to inhibit the growth of abnormal blood vessels.
