Regular eye exams should be a necessary part of everyone’s medical routine, but for no one more so than someone with diabetes. Diabetes is one of the most frequent causes of blindness and early detection of diseases of the eyes is critical. At Eye Care Associates of San Bernadino, the dedicated skill and compassion of our San Bernadino eye doctors, Drs. Mike Morton and Cheryl Strach and Head Optician Peggy O’Bannon, are available to you to take the very best care of your eye health.
Diabetes can significantly damage your eye health with an increased risk of developing diseases like glaucoma, and of having cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. Since there often are no warning signs or symptoms for these concerns, regular comprehensive eye exams are a must. At Eye Care Associates of San Bernadino, our San Bernadino eye doctors can find these problems quickly using the most advanced technologies, and treat these issues effectively with the latest treatments.
We are committed to enhancing your quality of life as well as improving your vision. Sometimes diabetic retinopathy can show symptoms such as blurred or double vision, flashing lights, blind spots or rings, floating spots, pain or pressure in the eye, and a decrease in peripheral vision. If you have not come in to see our San Bernadino eye doctor and are having any of these symptoms, please call us and come in immediately. Doctors Morton and Strach are here to listen and help.
If you have diabetes, vigilance should be your operative word, and diabetic eye health screenings should be a routine part of your life. You want to be able to see your child graduate high school or college, watch your daughter walk down the aisle, play golf or go bowling-all the things that good eye health enables you to do. At Eye Care Associates of San Bernadino, your local San Bernadino eye care professionals care about your good health, about preserving your vision, about how you feel. Please don’t wait until the last minute to come in for a screening. With diabetes you can’t afford to wait.
We have hours to suit your schedule and are open Monday through Saturday. Your comfort and convenience are important to us and it is our mission to serve you well.
