Diabetic Eye Care in Lisle, IL

At Choice Eye Care, we provide dedicated diabetic eye care in Lisle, IL to protect your eye and vision health. With regular diabetic eye exams and by working closely with your personal physician, our optometry team will do everything we can to prevent diabetes from impacting your ocular health and wellness. After all, there are many ways in which diabetes can affect the eyes.

How Diabetes Can Affect the Eyes

One of the most common ocular complications people encounter when they're diagnosed with diabetes is that of glaucoma. In fact, people with diabetes are almost twice as likely to develop glaucoma than the general population. Specifically, glaucoma occurs as a result of built-up pressure within the eye caused by diabetes. Without proper treatment, the pressure can begin to affect the optic nerve, which can cause a gradual and permanent loss of vision. Cataracts are another concern among patients with diabetes, as these patients are more than two times as likely to develop the condition. With cataracts, blurry spots develop within the lens of the affected eye, which blocks out light and can result in blurry or darkened vision.

How We Can Help

At Choice Eye Care, we provide diabetic eye exams and treatment for common eye conditions associated with diabetes, including cataracts and glaucoma. Annual diabetic eye exams can help us to monitor changes in your eyes, spot potential signs of these conditions, and better care for your vision. If you are diagnosed with a condition like glaucoma or cataracts, we can provide in-house treatment, including medications or procedures to relieve pressure on the optic nerve and specialized sunglasses to slow down the development of cataracts. With the right preventive care and treatment, we can reduce the likelihood of diabetes affecting your eye and vision health.

Request an Eye Care Appointment

If you have diabetes, make sure you're coming into our office for an annual diabetic eye exam. You can call Choice Eye Care at (630) 969-2020 to schedule your appointment with us or find out more about our practice.
