Diabetic Eye Care


View Video
Diabetes has become a health epidemic in the United States, occurring in 23.6 million people or 8 percent of the population.  Diabetes is a disease that affects the small blood vessels of the body, and as a result, in the eyes, it affects blood circulation to the retina.  For those diagnosed with diabetes, annual examinations of the retina allow us to promptly diagnose any changes in the blood flow to the retina leading to damage known as diabetic retinopathy.  If diabetic retinopathy occurs, then laser eye treatments such as Pan Retinal Photocoagulation or Focal Retinal Photocoagulation may be necessary. Fifth Avenue Eye Associates is equipped with a state of the art Argon Laser used for this purpose and, if necessary, treatment can be done in the comfort of our facility.  By finding these changes early, the doctors at Fifth Avenue Eye Associates can not only help prevent the vision threatening complications of diabetes, but also work with your general medical doctor to fine-tune your diabetes treatment regimen.
