What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes affects a number of Americans. This condition interferes with your body's natural ability to regulate sugar levels, causing an increased risk of heart disease, kidney issues, nerve damage, and other health problems, including vision. Diabetes can escalate vision threats, such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular edema, and diabetic retinopathy, which is damage to the blood vessels in the retina. When left untreated, diabetic eye diseases can lead to vision loss. If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you can preserve the health of your eyes by regularly seeing an eye specialist that understands how to identify, prevent, and manage diabetic eye diseases. Our expert team, led by Dr. Victoria Perez, at Texas State Optical Bandera is ready to help you with diabetic eye care treatments in San Antonio, TX. Schedule an eye exam to learn more about your options.
How Are Diabetic Eye Conditions Treated?
If you’re diabetic and experiencing symptoms, such as color blindness, floaters, dark areas in your field of vision, or reduced vision, setting up a thorough eye exam for early diagnosis and treatment may be beneficial. An eye exam may include dilating your pupils with special eye drops to take pictures of and examine the retina and other surrounding eye structures. Dr. Perez may also perform a regular tonometry test to check your eye's intraocular pressure and test for glaucoma. The results of these tests will allow our expert team to determine if additional treatments are necessary to preserve your vision. These additional treatments may include medications, eye injections, or surgeries.
Texas State Optical Bandera Reviews
This office is absolutely amazing. I am giving them a five star rating. I had some difficulty navigating between my medical benefit and my vision benefit and they were able to explain in simple terms which one would work the best financially.it worked out great. Everybody in the office is so kind and professional, and I just had an overall great experience I use to hate going to the eye doctor, and that is no longer the case.
Friendly staff, knowledgeable and very helpful.
