We’re Invested in Your Care

Los Angeles EyeCare Optometry Group has invested in the latest technology, provided with the help of Total Vision, to diagnose and treat our patients. 

We examine various aspects of your eyes to get a full view of your eye health, including your macula, retina, retinal vascular system, and optic disc. We may also dilate your eyes during your exam to help us get the clearest possible picture of your eye. 

We use several different technologies to better understand your eye health and how diabetes may affect your vision. Once we determine your eye’s needs, we can personalize a management plan to help preserve your vision.

Don’t Let Diabetes Harm Your Eyesight

Diabetes can impact the eyes in many ways. If you have diabetes, we recommend having annual eye exams to help identify potential issues before they cause permanent concerns.

Some issues may require medications or other health-based approaches to manage, and some problems can be corrected with the help of traditional frames and lenses.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy impacts the vital, light-sensitive cells in the retina. These cells are responsible for processing focused light into a picture interpreted by the brain.

This disease causes damage to the tiny blood vessels located in the retina. If they bulge or burst, they can leak blood and fluid into the eye.

The longer you have diabetes, the more at risk you are for diabetic retinopathy.

Those with severe diabetic retinopathy might experience swelling and fluid build-up in the macula. This is called diabetic macular edema. The macula is responsible for your central vision, so diabetic macular edema can inhibit your ability to read, drive, or recognize faces.

Both diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema can cause severe vision loss. These conditions must be detected and treated in their early stages to minimize irreversible damage.
