Diabetic Eye Exams in Silicon Beach

If you live in Silicon Beach, Playa Vista, or the surrounding area, you may be interested in scheduling a diabetic eye exam at our Westchester Eye Care Center.  Diabetes is a devastating disease that gets more common every year. Without proper treatment, both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can be fatal, but "milder" consequences include permanent vision loss, limb loss, nerve damage, and organ damage. Diabetes is even the leading cause of new-onset blindness, and blurry vision is one of the symptoms of diabetes. But here at Westchester Eye Care Center, we have one of the most important weapons in the fight to prevent diabetes: the diabetic eye exam. Learn why the eyes play such an important role in your preventative health care, and how our optometrists help prevent blindness with diabetic eye exams in Silicon Beach.

Importance of the Diabetic Eye Exam With a Silicon Beach Optometrist

The eye exam is one of the earliest ways to detect diabetes, because diabetic retinopathy is one of the earliest signs of this disease. Diabetic retinopathy may cause bleeding or abnormal activity in the blood vessels within your retina, which is the light-sensitive part of your eye. Instead of waiting until diabetes actually affects your vision and your ability to interpret light, it's important to schedule regular diabetic eye exams so that prompt treatment is possible. Our diabetic eye exams in Silicon Beach make it possible for patients to fight diabetes before any other symptoms show up.

Detecting and Treating Diabetic Retinopathy

Don't settle for basic vision checks at an eyeglass store. You need an experienced eye doctor who knows how to spot the subtle early warning signs of diabetic retinopathy. At Westchester Eye Care Center, your optometrist will have the equipment and experience necessary to perform the following components of a dilated diabetic eye exam:

  • Visual Acuity Test – Simple eye chart test to detect any vision problems

  • Tonometry Test – This measures the pressure in each eye

  • Retina Exam – After dilation, your optometrist will assess your optic nerve and retina for signs of blood vessel leaks, fatty deposits, lens changes, swelling, and tissue damage  

  • Tomography Test – Optical coherence tomography (OCT) allows us to capture detailed pictures of your eye tissue

Schedule Your Diabetic Eye Exam in Silicon Beach

Our Silicon Beach optometrist is currently accepting new patients, and we will work to accommodate your schedule and health concerns. Nobody plans to get diabetes, but many people and age groups have heightened risk factors, and regular checks give you more control over the outcome of any disease that develops. If you want to protect your vision and have enough time to treat diabetes in the future, make sure you schedule your next exam as soon as possible.

Testimonial

"Dr. T is very thorough with her eye exams. She asks all the right questions with what you need. She takes her time with her patients making sure they get what they need and get to know them. She's very professional but also approachable. You can ask her any eye related issues and she'll have answers for you. If she doesn't have an answer, which doesn't happen often, she'll get the right information for you. She also doesn't try to up sell you with what you don't need. I would recommend her to all my family and friends. In fact I've already done so and they're all very satisfied with the service."
