Whether you need a new pair of prescription sunglasses or a diabetic eye exam, our staff of expert professionals will make sure that you and your family get the eye care you need.Many of our patients come to us with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes. While it’s important to get regular eye exams, some preexisting conditions leave patients vulnerable to long term eye damage, including permanent vision loss. Diabetes is one of these pre-existing health conditions that requires close monitoring by your South Orange optometrist. With a diabetic eye exam, your optometrist is able to closely monitor the health and progression of your vision and allows us to make sure that you aren’t at risk of diabetic eye disease or glaucoma.
In a diabetic eye exam, your South Orange optometrist will check your vision with a Snellen Chart. Next, eye drops will be administered so that the doctor can see the back of your eye. Using a magnifying glass and a bright light the doctor will be able to see if there is damage to the back of your eye. The doctor will then check for blood vessels in the front and middle parts of the eye and the optic nerve. With a diabetic eye exam, you will be in the best possible position to monitor your health, and ensure lasting healthy vision.
