Diabetic Eye Exams

Book Your Appointment

Diabetes & Your Vision

Diabetes is a condition that can affect you for the rest of your life. While a lot of people might know what a diabetes diagnosis might mean for their overall health, they might not understand exactly what diabetes can do to their eyesight. OHIP will cover diabetics for a full eye exam once per year.

Dr. M. Chiu, Dr. K. Fong & Associates is proud to provide comprehensive eye exams for all patients with diabetes, as well as help you monitor your eye health for the rest of your life.

Diabetic Eye Complications

Diabetes doesn’t mean you will experience eye disease, but it does mean your chances of developing them increases. By booking annual eye exams, you can help protect your vision from damage caused by diabetes.

Some of the eye diseases you are more susceptible to with a diabetes diagnosis includes:

Diabetic retinopathy is caused when blood vessels at the back of your eye (the retina) become damaged and leak blood and other fluids into your eye, causing permanent vision loss.

People with diabetes are 2 to 5 times more likely to develop cataracts during their lifetime. Cataracts cloud the lens of your eyes and could impede your vision if left untreated.

How We Examine Your Eyes

Our practice is equipped with state of the art technology to better provide you with the care your family needs.

  • By using fundus photography, we can take extremely detailed photographs of the interior of your eyes to detect signs of eye disease and monitor your overall eye health.
  • We also use OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) scans to detect eye diseases. This device scans your eye by using light waves, creating a high-resolution cross-section image of the back of your eye (retina).

When Was Your Last Appointment?

Keeping annual appointments with your optometrists will help ensure your vision stays healthy, even with a diabetes diagnosis. OHIP will cover diabetics for a full eye exam once per year.

Even if you aren’t currently experiencing any symptoms of eye disease, the only way to know for sure is to book your eye exam today.
