Diabetic Eye Exams San Bernardino

Diabetics are prone to a few eye diseases that cause blindness if left undiagnosed and untreated. Among them are glaucoma, cataracts, and retinopathy. Glaucoma is an increased optical pressure that leads to optic nerve damage. Cataracts are a clouding of the eye’s lens that leads to blurred vision and decreased eyesight. Retinopathy is damage to the blood vessels in the retina and is the leading cause of new blindness among Americans under the age of sixty-five.

A diabetic retinal exam checks the eyes for diabetic retinopathy. For the exam, your eyes will be dilated through eye drops, which allows our optometrists o see the interior of the eyes and check for signs of the disease. Retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and one of the main causes of blindness in American adults. Nearly half of all diabetics will develop some degree of diabetic retinopathy during their lifetime. In the early stages of this disease, there is often no symptoms of pain, but regular retinal exams at Eye Associates of San Bernardino are the best way to detect the disease before vision loss occurs.

Just as sun can damage your skin, in the form of burning, wrinkling, premature aging, or skin cancer, the sun can also negatively effect your eyes. Exposure to ultra violet radiation (UV) can cause photokeratitis, also known as sunburn of the eye. Photokeratitis hurts, makes your eyes red, extremely sensitive to light, and tearful. Though these symptoms will not cause permanent damage to the eyes and clear up rather quickly, extended exposure can cause serious impairments to your vision. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, we advise that you visit your San Bernardino Eye Doctor at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino. They can advise you further on protecting your eyes from UV rays as well as check to see if you’ve sustained permanent retinal damage.

Long periods of unprotected exposure to UV rays can greatly increase your changes of developing cataracts and further damage to your retina. These conditions greatly impact your vision and cataracts require surgery to reverse. Additionally, UV rays can cause macular degeneration and cancer. Noticeable retinal damage includes blurred vision, changes in color vision or difficulty seeing at nighttime.

Sun damage can be prevented by wearing UV eye protection. This means having a protective coating on sunglasses. Just because it isn’t sunny out, doesn’t mean you are protected from UV rays. UV radiation is invisible the eye, so take cautions and wear UV eye protection when outside for long periods of time. Visit our San Bernardino optical store for prescription sunglasses to protect you and your family from harmful UV radiation.
