Michael Lange OD, CNS talks about the importance of eye exams in diabetics.

Michael Lange OD, CNS states all diabetics need to have a comprehensive eye exam done yearly. Diabetes affects the tiny blood vessels in the earliest stages. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in our country. Much of this blindness is preventable if early intervention is accomplished. Many signs and symptoms of diabetes can show up in the visual system, states Dr Michael Lange of Lange Eye Care and Associates. Many patients will complain of decreased distance vision that may be a result of elevated blood sugar causing progressive myopic changes. So if a patient all of a sudden has a more near-sighted prescription it may be from diabetes. There are many other things that can cause a myopic shift however. When the optometrist or ophthalmologist dilates the eyes they are looking at the tiny blood vessels to see if there is any small leaky micro aneurysms or dot and blot hemes in the retina. This is called non proliferative diabetic retinopathy and if detected early can be treated successfully. Diabetics need to take the disease seriously and follow strict diet and exercise regiment to try to minimize the negative effects of diabetes. Lange Eye Care doctors are very familiar with the treatment of diabetic related eye disease. If u need a good eye doctor in central Florida then come to one of the ten Lange Eye Care locations.
