Diabetic Eye Examination


A yearly dilated eye examination is necessary when you have been diagnosed with diabetes.  Our eyes are very susceptible to early damage from diabetes and this damage may have no early visual symptoms.  During your examination, Dr. Dietrich will ensure you have no bleeding or swelling inside your eye and may even use 3-D OCT imaging to view the internal structures of your eyes that cannot be seen with dilation alone.  Following your evaluation, Dr. Dietrich will discuss any further eye care needs and be in communication with your medical doctor about the health of your eyes.
