Diabetic Retinopathy is the most common cause of blindness in the United States.
This condition results from uncontrolled diabetes resulting in broken blood vessels in the retina which can decrease vision. This disease can be treated and vision loss prevented, if diagnosed early enough.
It is very important that all diabetics have yearly dilated eye exams. Your eye care professionals at the Eger Eye Group can tell you if you show signs of diabetic eye disease by performing comprehensive evaluations. We can also provide state-of-the-art laser treatment when indicated.
