With the newly launched services, the clinic wants to emphasize the importance of having an annual eye exam for individuals with diabetes. They rely on state-of-the-art equipment which enables them to efficiently identify potential issues.
Diabetes can affect different aspects of an individual’s health and increase the risk for various eye diseases. It is thus recommended by the CDC and optometry specialists that individuals with diabetes have regular annual eye exams. During the exam, the doctor will check the eyes for potential problems, which can help prevent more serious issues in the future.
Individuals with diabetes have too much glucose in their bloodstream, which can lead to complications with the eyes. Diabetes patients are more likely to develop common eye diseases like open-angle glaucoma and cataracts.
Diabetic retinopathy happens when a blood vessel in the retina leaks or bulges, and it can permanently damage the individual’s vision. If not addressed in a timely manner, this condition can lead to diabetic macular edema (DME), and the swelling of the macula can severely damage the macula, causing blindness.
All Eyes Now clinics have advanced technological equipment for conducting diabetic eye exams. They utilize Optos Retinal Imaging to take detailed color photos of the interior of the eye to examine the macula, retina, optic disc, and vascular system more effectively than traditional dilation. They are also equipped with Optical Coherence Tomography and Virtual Visual Field testing technology.
The newly launched services are consistent with the clinic’s long-standing commitment to being a leading provider of optometry services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Eyes Now is focused on providing prompt eye exams and treatments relying on high-tech equipment. All practices are open seven days a week, and exams can be scheduled within days. The clinic accepts all major insurance plans.
A satisfied client said: “I went here for a regular annual eye exam. I liked that there was the option to book your appointment online, and you could get slots easily. My exam went well — they told me what they were doing, and it was very professional. I really liked Dr. Abraham — he is very friendly and explained options.”
