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.

I am so lucky I came across a Google listing of envision eye care. They have one of the nicest offices I have been to, along with very friendly staff and thorough exams. My family has a history of eye disease so I am very picky with the offices I trust with my eyes and I definitely feel at peace coming to this office. I have been visiting this office for 3 years now and recommend it to all my friends and family.

On April 26th, I was scheduled for the same routine eye exam at Envision Eyecare. An Exam I have received without issue for 20+ years, all over the country. I was unable to be examined because the exam room did not accommodate my wheelchair. This is a fact. I was told – very politely – by your front office staff that I could not be seen from my wheelchair. This is a fact. When I pushed back on the staff, they went to the back to talk to Doctor Jeong. The doctor did not return with the staffer, the staffer returned with a message for me that if I was unable to transfer into the chair, I could not receive my exam. This is a fact. I did not pursue this any further – the doctor had been consulted, why would I continue to waste everyone’s time? No one offered to assist me into the chair, like you seem to think. That is a fact. I decided I was not interested in forcing you to take my money. Instead, I left the office. I stayed in the hallway outside of your office, crying. I called my spouse to pick me up and shared my experience with them and later my friends.I do not desire to defame your business. My goal is to share my perspective, so you have adequate knowledge to *make improvements* to your office, when possible. Individuals with disabilities are a minority group whose needs are often not met because there is no system for improving inaccessible businesses. The onus then falls on people with disabilities, which exhausts us and prompts us to simply take our business elsewhere. After 34 years of experiencing this, I have decided I will do my best to voice my concerns, politely, from now on. This is hard for me, but I do it in hopes of improving the businesses I experience. If you are within minimal standards for the state, and that is good enough for your business, that is your right; however, you have now been told that these minimal standards exclude a large portion of the disabled population. You must now decide if you will use this information to improve your business over time, or not.When I shared my experience with my friends and family, they came to my defense. I did not write a review – until now. Instead, I reached out to JK and Dr. Jeong directly, via email, on April 28th. It is now May 11th, and all of the reviews from my friends have received defensive public replies, but you have not responded to me. This seems to be your chief complaint in my visit to your office. I did not continue to engage with you in person, as I was very emotional and no effort was made on the part of the doctor to engage with me. So, I emailed you. I did this to share my experience, calmly, in hopes that you will see that your current approach is not inclusive and needs to be amended. Perhaps you are meeting minimum standards for accessibility, but would you accept minimum standards in terms of eyecare? Likely not. I encourage you to take this feedback and remember it the next time you discuss whether or not it is financially or morally worth it to obtain a retractable exam chair. I hope you will then choose more than the minimum standards, and truly embrace a business model of caring for all people.I am not interested in continuing this conversation and I will not respond to additional comments. On April 27th, I resumed my search for an eye exam and located (easily) accessible, accommodating, kind, eyecare from businesses who strove to select equipment and offices which allow for more than the minimum standard of accessibility.

I came to Envision EyeCare to shop for glasses because I have a high prescription and was having SO much trouble finding good glasses. They are out-of-network for my insurance. But, he was very knowledgeable, kind, and took care with finding good glasses for my prescription! He was quick and there wasn’t any surprise charges that made these glasses or lenses super expensive that you would find at big optical stores. Thank you guys for all your help, you made this process much less frustrating. It was nice to find someone who had experience with people who have high prescriptions. I am grateful and will be coming back!
