Diabetic patients are very susceptible to other health conditions. Diabetes can affect these patients’ eye health. Therefore, diabetic eye care is crucial for these patients. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that diabetes patients need to be checked for by a professional Huntington Beach diabetes doctor at a quality eye care practice like Orange Coast Eye Center.
One common eye condition among diabetic patients is Diabetic retinopathy. This condition can be detected when a qualified Huntington Beach diabetes doctor does a dilated eye exam. If it’s detected, the diabetic patient will need to see the eye doctor more frequently than non-diabetic patients. It’s very important that diabetic patients receive the necessary eye care they need. Our expert eye doctors at Orange Coast Eye Center perform comprehensive eye exams. During the exam, patients are screened for diabetic eye problems as well as a number of other eye diseases and conditions. In addition to diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts are among the eye diseases and conditions that can be detected during a thorough eye exam. These thorough eye exams are invaluable tools in maintaining good eye health by detecting and helping to prevent diseases in patients of all ages. The comprehensive eye exam typically includes but isn’t limited to: a slit lamp test, a dilated eye exam, refraction for eyeglasses and contact lenses and a glaucoma pressure testing. There are many eye diseases and conditions that present with no signs early on. The only way to detect them early is by getting a thorough eye exam done by a professional eye doctor like ours. Early detection of any problems will help reduce the risk of further harm and will allow for more treatment options. In addition to our eye exams, we also offer many other high quality optical services at Orange Coast Eye Center. We offer contact lens exams and fittings and carry a wonderful selection of eye care products in our optical department.
