Diabetes Eye Q & A

When unmanaged, diabetes damages your blood vessels, including the tiny blood vessels that feed your retinas. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that occurs when the blood vessels in your retinas leak blood and other fluids that damage and scar your retina.

Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of blindness. Fortunately, when diagnosed early during a diabetic eye exam, diabetic retinopathy is treatable.

In addition to the usual tests, he also uses dilating eye drops to widen your pupils and carefully examine your retinas for any signs of damage.

Most of the time, eye diseases like retinopathy, macular edema, glaucoma, and cataracts don’t cause symptoms in their early stages. As diabetic eye diseases progress, you might notice symptoms that include:

  • Increase in floaters 
  • Blurry vision
  • Fluctuating visual acuity
  • Reduced color vision
  • Dark spots in your vision

It’s critical to have routine diabetic eye exams, so Dr. Weinlander can monitor your ocular health and treat diabetic eye diseases before they damage your sight.

During a diabetic eye exam, Dr. Weinlander performs all of the standard eye tests to evaluate your visual acuity and eye health, including glaucoma screenings. In addition to the usual tests, he also uses dilating eye drops to widen your pupils and carefully examine your retinas. 

Early identification of the disease is crucial to effective treatment and management of your condition. In addition to prescribing medications and performing laser treatment where appropriate, he works closely with retina specialists who can help you if you have advanced disease.

Dr. Weinlander offers a comprehensive range of eye surgery services and provides thorough consultations and exams to ensure he recommends the best treatment for your condition.

Dr. Weinlander offers intravitreal injections to improve vision and reverse some diabetic damage. He will examine you to see if you are a good candidate for this treatment during your diabetic eye exam.
