Diabetic Eyes Require Special Care & Attention

If you have diabetes, you are more likely to develop eye conditions like glaucoma or cataracts more quickly than the average person. Additionally, you may develop diabetic retinopathy, a serious condition where the blood vessels in your retina become damaged, causing vision loss.

At Envision, we can help you keep an eye on your eye health, and make the necessary lifestyle changes to manage your diabetes effectively and avoid related eye conditions.

When Should I Worry?

The American Optometric Association suggests that patients with diabetes have their eyes examined annually. However, if you start to experience any of these symptoms, you should book an appointment with us right away:

  • Floaters in your vision.
  • Blind spots.
  • Blurry vision.
  • Fluctuating vision.
  • Difficulty focusing.
  • Problems with your color vision.

How Should I Prepare for My Appointment?

We are here to help you find the answers you need, but there are a few things you can prepare to make your appointment go more quickly and smoothly. If you have symptoms that are new or have been reoccurring for an extended period, make sure to record what they are and when they happen and bring this list with you. Also, please ensure you keep track of any other health issues you may be experiencing, when they happen, and what, if anything, makes them stop.

If you have questions or feel you need immediate attention, please book an appointment with us so we can evaluate your eye health and address any potential problems right away.

Our Technology

At Envision Eye Care, we proudly offer some of the latest advancements in technology to help us provide you with the highest standard of care.

A fundus camera photographs the back of the eye (called the fundus) and allows your optometrist to view your retina, optic nerve, and retinal blood vessels. Your pupils will need to be dilated to give your optometrist the best view. The procedure involves photographing your eye with a low powered microscope and an attached camera.

During your diabetic eye exam, we may use fundus photography to get a better view of your eye. The photograph will show drusen (fatty proteins), abnormal bleeding, scar tissue, and other irregularities that may indicate the formation of diabetic retinopathy or other conditions.

Visual field testing is essential to gauge your eyes’ health through your peripheral vision. Visual field tests can detect blind spots and other defects that may lead to more significant problems.

The initial visual field test will involve primary screening of your peripheral vision by covering one eye and describing what you see on the far edges of your field of view. Based on these results, we may recommend more comprehensive testing.

We use perimetry technology, where you set your chin in a large bowl-shaped instrument and press a button when you see a flash of light. This allows us to pinpoint specific areas of vision loss and better detect certain eye conditions or diseases.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans take cross-sectional photos of your retinas using light. The tests are non-invasive and allow us to see your retina’s layers clearly and measure their thickness.

During the test, we’ll dilate your pupil to have a better view of your retina, and then have you place your head on a support in front of the machine so your retina can be scanned. The entire process takes around 5 to 10 minutes and is designed to be completely painless.

Insurance Accepted

At Envision, we accept many insurance plans such as major government insurance plans (Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare), most private insurance plans (United Health, Humana, Anthem BCBS, Atena) and key vision plans (VSP, Spectera and EyeMed).

We request that you provide details of your insurance at scheduling so that we may serve you better by checking your eligibility ahead of time. Please bring your insurance cards with you to your appointment
