If you have diabetes or pre-diabetes, it is important to have an annual eye screening. Having an ophthalmologist examine the blood vessels in the back of your eye can help determine how well you are managing your diabetes, according to the American Academy of OphthalmologyOff Site Icon

By having routine eye exams, eye doctors can prevent most diabetic blindness and diagnose retinopathy in its early stages so it can be treated, according to the AAO.

To help keep your diabetes in control and avoid diabetic eye disease, the AAO recommends that you:

  • Eat a well-balanced diet
  • Exercise
  • Have HgA1C checked regularly
  • Keep blood sugar levels in control

Talk to your physician for more information about diabetic eye disease.
