Diabetic Eye Exams
Permanent damage to the eyes can occur in anyone with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, even if they are on diabetic medication. Treatment is usually more successful if the disease is discovered before symptoms begin. This is why many providers request their diabetic patients get a yearly dilated eye exam.
Some practices and locations will offer a quick photograph of the eye to avoid dilation which may miss important findings and other pathology. Do not take any short cuts when it comes to your vision. If you have diabetes and are in need of an eye exam call Cardinal Vision LLC today at (803) 999-3937 to schedule your exam.
