What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is one of the reasons we decide to focus on our patients’ overall health adjacent to their eye health.
Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects how your body processes blood sugar (glucose). Sugar is needed to provide the energy your body needs throughout the day, but too much of it in the bloodstream can lead to adverse health effects to your heart, teeth, and eyes.
Please make sure you’re undergoing regular comprehensive eye exams if you have diabetes.
