The prevalence of diabetic retinopathy is closely linked to the duration of diabetes and the level of glycemic control. Here's how
we can help you safeguard your eye health.
Regular Eye Examinations:
We strongly recommend regular eye examinations for individuals with diabetes, even in
the absence of apparent vision problems. Early detection is key to successful treatment
and minimizing the risk of vision loss.
Advanced Screening Technologies:
To ensure the most accurate assessment of your eye health, we utilize advanced
screening technologies using AI based state of the art fundus camera - which provide
detailed images of the retina and help identify any abnormalities or changes associated
with diabetic retinopathy. These screening methods enable us to develop a precise
treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Maintaining optimal glycemic control is crucial in preventing or delaying the onset and
progression of diabetic retinopathy. Our team will work closely with you to establish
individualized blood sugar targets and provide guidance on lifestyle modifications,
medication management, and regular monitoring. By managing your blood sugar levels
effectively, you can reduce the risk of complications and protect your eye health.
Patient Education and Support:
We prioritize patient education to empower you with the knowledge and tools to take an
active role in protecting your eye health. Our team will provide information on diabetic
retinopathy, its risk factors, and preventive measures. We'll also offer guidance on
lifestyle modifications, such as regular physical activity, healthy eating, smoking
cessation, and managing blood pressure, all of which contribute to better eye health
