Protecting Your Vision Against Diabetes 

Empress Eye Clinic is equipped with cutting-edge technology to diagnose Diabetic Eye Diseases in the early stages to prevent vision loss.

Diabetes affects your overall health in several ways, but it can have an especially dire effect on your eyesight. Having diabetes can increase your risk for developing eye diseases and conditions and is the leading cause of blindness among Canadians.

To help protect your eyes, please see us for a diabetic eye exam at least once a year.  During these exams, we’ll complete a thorough comprehensive eye exam and we’ll take extra precautions to check your eyes for the development of the diseases that are commonly associated with and caused by diabetes.

Diabetes & The Eye 

Diabetes is a chronic health condition that affects the insulin levels in your body. If you have diabetes, it means your body either can’t make enough insulin or cannot properly use the insulin it does produce. 

Insulin regulates the amount of glucose in your blood. If your blood glucose levels are often high, it can damage the sensitive blood vessels in your eyes, increasing your chance of developing eye diseases such as:

  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Diabetic macular edema
  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
