What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

The eye care providers at Heart of America Eye Care can diagnose and manage diabetic retinopathy, a serious eye condition that can develop in individuals with diabetes. With the help of specialized equipment, we carefully examine the retina, blood vessels, and the back of the eye to detect any abnormalities. If needed, we can use specialized testing like fundus photography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) to capture detailed images of the retina and its layers. If diabetic retinopathy is detected, we will determine the stage and severity of the condition. Diabetic retinopathy has different stages, ranging from mild nonproliferative retinopathy to more severe proliferative retinopathy. Regular monitoring is essential to detect any progression of the condition. If diabetic retinopathy reaches a stage where intervention is required, we can offer various treatment options including laser photocoagulation and intravitreal injections. The eye care providers at Heart of America Eye Care often collaborate with other healthcare professionals, such as endocrinologists and primary care doctors, to ensure comprehensive diabetes management.
