McFarland Eye Care is skilled in treating issues related to diabetes. One of the greatest threats to eye health is Diabetic Retinopathy. You may be experiencing symptoms from this and not even be aware, which is why it is important to have regularly scheduled eye exams.
When left unmonitored or untreated, high blood sugar levels can damage tiny blood vessels in the eye and cause irreparable damage. This condition is called Diabetic Retinopathy. One of the first symptoms of this may include blurred vision, among many others.
The longer a person has diabetes, the greater their chances are of developing diabetic retinopathy. Almost 80% of people who have diabetes for 15 years or more have some damage to the blood vessels in their retina. The good thing is we can help to treat this and we can help catch it early.

You can trust McFarland Eye Care with your eye health. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, please don’t hesitate to schedule your diabetic eye exam at our Hot Springs clinic.
