November is National Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month

Mobile diabetic eye disease November is National Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month. Although November is quickly coming to a close, it’s important for patients to remember year-round how diabetes can impact their vision.

Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye problems that people with diabetes may face as a complication of the disease. Diabetic eye diseases may include:

  • Diabetic retinopathy (most common)
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma

Because diabetes can lead to various eye conditions, there are several different symptoms you should watch for. Some of the most common symptoms of diabetic eye disease may include:

  • Floaters
  • Blurry or cloudy vision
  • Drastic change in vision in one or both eyes
  • Blindness

The only way to detect diabetic eye disease is through a comprehensive dilated eye exam.

Dr. Christopher Walton and our experienced team can help you if you’re experiencing vision problems. To fully determine if you have a diabetic eye condition, Dr. Walton will meet with you in person to conduct a comprehensive eye exam. Together, we will work to detect these diseases as early as possible, administer timely treatment and personalize your follow-up care to help prevent further vision loss.
