Diabetic Eye Care

Hartford Eye Wellness - Dr. Wayne Castagna - Hartford Dentist - diabetic eye care

Diabetes affects the blood vessels, causing them to leak fluid, fats and blood into the retina. This causes the retina to swell. If the disease is allowed to progress, new blood vessels can develop which hemorrhage and can pull off the retina causing a retinal detachment. A yearly eye exam and close control of blood sugar and blood pressure are the three steps to preventing complications, including blindness, from this disease.
