Diabetes Eye Clinic

Diabetes can cause problems in your eyes. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading cause of blindness in the world. Diabetic retinopathy is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina. Uncontrolled diabetes can damage tiny blood vessels of the retina. When these blood vessels are damaged, they may leak blood and grow fragile new vessels. When the nerve cells are damaged, vision is impaired. These changes can result in blurring of your vision, hemorrhage into the eye and if untreated, retinal detachment.

People often experience changes in their vision when they reach their 40s. To look out for the early signs of eye conditions, in case there’s a more serious problem, we use an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) device. It takes a detailed 3D image below the surface of your retina, giving us a more detailed picture of your eye health.

An OCT exam can aid in the detection and monitoring of serious eye diseases. As we grow older, our retinas may change in ways not always visible on the surface and without physical symptoms. Because the very early signs of some diseases may show up in this exam, it’s important to book an appointment if you’re worried about any of the symptoms listed below.

We recommend having an OCT exam at least every two years with your eye test. If you’re over 40 or have any symptoms a yearly exam is better. However, if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms.

Trouble reading or concentrating on any activity that requires fine vision.

Straight lines appear wavy or bent.

Faces are hard to see.

You see dark or empty patches in the centre of your vision.
