Diabetic eye examinations are essential if you have either type one or type two diabetes. That’s because you are prone to vision loss and eye damage as possible consequences.

A yearly eye exam if recommended for all our valued patients, but it’s even more crucial for diabetics. It probably comes as no surprise that diabetes can have a serious impact on your health, and may affect parts of your body as diverse as your feet and your eyes. Unfortunately, when it comes to your eye wellness, you cannot simply count on warning signs to remind you to be examined by our Tampa eye doctor. As with many eye conditions, diabetic retinopathy reveals no  obvious symptoms in its early stages. And by the time you become aware that you are experiencing problems, it is typically because some degree of vision loss or harm to your eyes has occurred. And since either of those might not be reversible, it is all the more vital that you come in for an annual eye exam. Our Tampa eye doctor can detect indications of diabetic retinopathy with various tests, and suggest the most appropriate measures for management or treatment, before the disease can progress. The most effective way to combat diabetic retinopathy is to work in conjunction with our office and your primary doctor to control your blood sugar by following medical recommendations when it comes to diet, exercise, and medication.

Don’t risk your vision or your eye health. If you have diabetes, be sure to contact our office and let us schedule a convenient time for you to come in for a diabetic eye exam.

Contact Lenses 33615

Keratitis is essentially an inflamed cornea sometimes caused by infection or bacteria.The cornea covers the pupil and iris and is susceptible to infection from contact lenses. Symptoms of keratitis include redness, pain, excess tears or eye discharge, blurry vision and even decreased vision. If it is left untreated, it can become severe or lead to permanent vision loss. When contact lenses are not cleaned properly, bacteria or parasites can inhabit the surface of the lens or inside the carrying case. When the lens is inside the eye, the cornea can then be contaminated, which results in infectious keratitis. That’s why it’s important to follow proper contact lens cleaning methods. Contact lenses can increase the risk of infectious and non-infectious keratitis, due to the lenses not being disinfected or wearing lenses for longer than recommended. It is more common in those who wear extended-wear contact lenses 33615.

Proper guidelines for cleaning should be followed in order to avoid a fungal eye infection. Contact lenses 33615 should always be cleaned, rinsed and disinfected. Hands should be washed so as not to transfer any dirt or germs to the eye. Avoid moisturizing soap, and clean lenses with a solution that is recommended for the brand. Cleaning lenses helps to remove buildup, cosmetics and other debris that can impair comfort. If you need help cleaning your contact lenses, call our offices and one of our professional staff can help you.
