Diabetic Eye Problems Las Vegas
Your vision is important. As a diabetic, you should be aware that diabetes can affect your eyes. Many people with diabetes maintain excellent vision throughout their lives. However, each day in Las Vegas there are individuals who lose enough vision from diabetes that they can no longer drive or read. New glasses will not fix the problem. Many times this could have been prevented. That is why seeing an ophthalmologist regularly for diabetic eye problems is so important.
Diabetic Eye Problems Las Vegas Symptoms
For the first 90% of the eye disease, there are no symptoms. Getting a quality eye exam from a highly trained eye care specialist like Dr. Brimhall, can point out where the earliest problems exist. He can also help your primary care doctor (Optometrist) know if your current treatments are effective or if they need to be adjusted. He can also provide special treatments for the eyes that can preserve vision. A yearly diabetic eye exam is covered by most insurances. If you have any other eye problems, they can also be addressed during these exams.
