Sugar Related  Vision Variance By The Hour

Diabetic Glasses? One Pair or Two?

If you have diabetes, you should know that the refractive prescription may change from morning to afternoon, depending on how you control your blood sugar. If you can manage it well, the refractive error will remain stable, although many times, it will still change to some degree. Our approach to these myopic shifts secondary to your sugar level is to refract in the morning and refraction in the afternoon.  


When one is diabetic, vessels (veins or arteries) tend to break and bleed. The leaking vein/Artery may blur your sight and may need a laser to seal the vessel. Our Retinal Imaging System allows our physicians to look for possible bleeding and other conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and corneal defects prevalent in Diabetic Patients.  It is worth mentioning that other concerns exist and affect the overall health of the eye and your body, such as being a "slow healer."  From the eye to the kidneys are affected by diabetes. Call us. We can help.
