November is Diabetes Awareness Month

Diabetes affects more than 26 million Americans. Most everyone knows someone who has this disease or you may even have it yourself. Aside from getting regular check ups with your primary care doctor or endocrinologist, it is also very important to be having your eyes checked on an annual basis. Diabetes can cause hemorrhaging and fluid build up in the back of the eye which, if left untreated, can lead to vision loss. Normally these changes are seen in diabetics whose blood sugar is uncontrolled, or in those patients who have had diabetes for a long period of time.

Dr. Noss and Dr. Lynch are committed to our diabetic patient’s eye health and overall well being. Our doctors take the time to send a diabetic report to your primary care physician following your visit with the results of your diabetic exam.

If you have diabetes and you have not had your eyes examined within the last year, it is time to schedule your annual diabetes appointment with us at Full Spectrum Eyecare.
