Diabetes Eye Specialist in Burnsville - What to Expect at your Diabetic Eye Exam
Complete Family Eyecare | 13971 W. Preserve Blvd. Burnsville MN 55337 | (952) 562-8116 | https://completeeyecaremn.com Hello, my name is Dr. Steven Reinders optometrist and owner of the eye clinic located in Burnsville, and also serving the areas of Prior Lake, Savage, Apple Valley and Eagan. In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the incidents of diabetes in the general population. Diabetes can cause significant retinal disease which can be visually devastating. Diabetes can also increase the risk of glaucoma and cataracts. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with diabetes, it's important you have your eyes thoroughly examined by an experienced optometrist,having an eye exam performed at least once per year. Diabetes can damage small capillary beds inside the eye underneath the retina. New blood vessels then grow into these ischemic areas called neovascularization of the retina. It is these new blood vessels that break and leak, causing hemorrhages , vision loss and diabetic retinal disease. As part of your diabetic eye examination, your pupils will be dilated and all structures within the eye will be inspected. Also, retinal photographs will be obtained to document the normal retina for baseline purposes, or to record progression of any retinal disease. In addition to assessing the impact of diabetes on your eyes, we can also tell from the retinal health how much diabetes is affecting the rest of the body. The eye can be considered a window into the rest of the body, hence diabetic retinal diseases often assigned to other structures inside the body may being damaged such as kidneys or other organs.

Diabetics reminded to get eye exams
In Brian Nord's Plymouth home, a collection of glucose tablets and glucose-reading gadgets sit at the ready. Nord is one of more than 29 million Americans living with diabetes. "Most people that see me wouldn't figure out that I have this chronic illness," Nord said. "It doesn't look like cancer, and it doesn't look like AIDS." He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 1977, but in the past few years, he's become an advocate, taking part in walks, and working to raise money to find a cure. "It's very important because if I don't take my medicine for one day, I'm in the hospital or the emergency room and your mortality rate is 50/50," Nord said. It's a serious concern, but for diabetics, blood sugar isn't the only thing they need to worry about. "Diabetic eye disease is actually the leading cause of preventative loss of vision and blindness that we see," said Dr. Tina McCarty, an optometrist at the Eye Care Center in Maple Grove. Dr. McCarty says it's imperative that diabetics get comprehensive eye exams annually. "A lot of times, early diabetic eye disease is either symptom free, or the symptoms are so subtle that patients don't make that correlation," she said. After dilating a patient's pupils, Dr. McCarty uses a lens to look for signs of diabetes such as glaucoma or changes in the blood vessels. "Particularly leakage in the form of blood or fatty fluid, that could indicate a problem, but it could also cause loss of vision," Dr. McCarty said. As for Nord, he admits that he's more susceptible to cataracts and glaucoma due to his illness, but he keeps close tabs on his vision. His ultimate goal is that one day, researchers will find a cure for diabetes. "There would be no better feeling in the world than that," Nord said. Meanwhile, if an optometrist identifies something in the eye related to diabetes, they would correspond with the patient's physician. The next steps could include injections or surgery.

Routine eye exams decrease among diabetes patients in Ontario
From Toronto - Routine eye exams among diabetes patients in Ontario have declined significantly in the past 10 years, according to a report published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Researchers reviewed data on government-funded eye exams in Ontario among diabetes patients aged 40 to 64. They found that eye exam rates started dropping in 2004 from 69% to 57% in 2010. Researchers believe that the decline was due to a major policy change in 2004, when the province started delisting routine eye exams for healthy individuals under 65 years old. The delisting appears to have had an unintended consequence of reducing eye exams for diabetic patientsl—people who are at significant risk of diabetic retinopathy, a leading causes of blindness.We spoke with Dr. Tara Kiran, MD, principal investigator of this study, who offered this insight: "The delisting of policy for eye exams came into effect in 2004, and right after it came into effect, we found a marked drop in eye exam rates in people with diabetes age 40-64. And ever since then, the rate has remained low. This is important because eye exams are an important component of high quality diabetes care. People with diabetes should have an eye exam every 1 to 2 years to check for damage to the eye caused by diabetes. If untreated, this eye damage can eventually lead to blindness. So overall, our findings suggest that delisting worsens the quality of diabetes care in Ontario, even though the policy was not supposed to affect people with diabetes. The policy change clearly had some unintended negative consequences. I personally think the government should reconsider and make eye exams universally covered for all. When exams are only covered for certain groups, the messaging can be confusing and it's often the most vulnerable who are most confused and don't get the eye exams that they need. The best way of ensuring that everyone who needs an eye exam gets an eye exam is by having eye exams covered for everyone, regardless of medical condition or age."

Diabetic Eye Diseases
Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness among working-age adults in India. Yet with early diagnosis and timely treatment, diabetic eye disease can be controlled. The key is an eye examination through dilated pupils at least once a year. People with diabetes may develop eye problems as a complication of the disease. People with diabetes are 25 times more likely to become blind than people without diabetes. Almost half of all people with diabetes will develop some degree of diabetic eye disease. Early detection and timely treatment of diabetic eye disease can reduce your risk of vision loss and blindness. What is diabetic eye disease? Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye problems that people with diabetes may face as a complication of this disease. All can cause severe vision loss or even blindness. Diabetic eye disease may include:  Diabetic retinopathy- damage to blood vessels in the retina.  Cataract- clouding of the eye’s lens.  Glaucoma- increase in fluid pressure inside the eye that leads to optic nerve damage and loss of vision. Who is most likely to get diabetic retinopathy? Anyone with diabetes. The longer someone has diabetes, the more likely he or she will get diabetic retinopathy. Nearly half of all people with diabetes will develop some degree of diabetic retinopathy during their lifetime. What are the symptoms of diabetic retinopathy? Often there are none in early stages of the disease. Vision may not change until the disease becomes severe. Nor is there any pain. Blurred vision may occur when the macula- the part of the retina that provides sharp, central vision – swells from leaking fluid. This condition is called macular edema. If new vessels have grown on the surface of the retina, they can bleed into the eye, blocking vision. But, even in more advanced cases, the disease may progress a long way without symptoms. This is why regular eye examinations for people with diabetes are so important. How is diabetic retinopathy detected? If you have diabetes, you should have your eyes examined at least once a year. Your eyes should be dilated during the exam. That means eye drops are used to enlarge your pupils. This allows the ophthalmologist to see more of the inside of your eyes to check for signs of the disease. Can diabetic retinopathy be treated? Yes. Your eye care professional may suggest laser surgery in which strong light beam is aimed onto your retina to shrink the abnormal vessels. Laser surgery has been proved to reduce the risk of severe vision loss from this type of retinopathy by 60%. If you have macular edema, laser surgery may also be used. In this case, the laser beam is used to seal the leaking blood vessels. However, laser surgery often cannot restore vision that has already been lost. That is why finding diabetic retinopathy early is the best way to prevent vision loss. Can diabetic retinopathy be prevented? Not totally, but your risk can be greatly reduced. Better control of blood sugar levels slows the onset and progression of retinopathy and lessens the need for laser surgery for severe retinopathy. How common are the other diabetic eye diseases? If you have diabetes, you are also at risk for other diabetic eye diseases. Studies have shown that you are twice as likely to get a cataract as a person who does not have the disease. Also, cataracts develop at an earlier age in patients with diabetes. Glaucoma may also become a problem. A person with diabetes is nearly twice as likely to get glaucoma as other adults. What can you do to protect your vision? Finding and treating the disease early, before it causes vision loss or blindness, is the best way to control diabetic eye disease. So, if you have diabetes, make sure you get a dilated eye examination once a year.

Diabetic Retinopathy
What is Diabetic Eye Disease? Diabetic retinopathy happens when the small blood vessels in the retina are damaged due to blood glucose levels. In early stages, the walls of the retina weaken which allows blood and fluids to leak. Often, this can cause blurred vision in both eyes. In the next phase, new blood vessels grow within the retina and can rupture and bleed. Scar tissue that forms can cause retinal detachment, a severe condition that requires urgent surgery. Diabetic retinopathy can lead to another serious condition called diabetic macular edema (DME). With this condition, fluid leaks around the macula causing swelling and vision loss. In addition to the above, those with diabetes are more likely to develop glaucoma and cataracts. Symptoms Diabetic eye disease can have few or no symptoms in its early stages. This is why it is important to monitor one's vision with regular comprehensive eye exams. However, when the disease progresses symptoms can include: Distorted or blurry vision Loss of sharp vision Sensitivity to light/glare Balance issues Seeing flashes or floaters Poor night vision Dark spots in vision Vision loss Seeing double Prevention Early intervention can protect the eyes and potentially save one's sight. It is recommended that those with diabetes receive a comprehensive dilated eye examination at least once per year- more often if with the presence of other eye conditions. Additionally, to help prevent diabetic eye disease, it is essential to control blood sugar levels, high blood pressure, and cholesterol. Additionally, exercise, diet and stress reduction can help maintain eye health. Untreated diabetic eye disease can lead to permanent vision loss. Acting early is critical. Community Eye Center has ophthalmologists and optometrists who provide comprehensive diabetic eye exams as well as retina specialists.

Adverse effects of Diabetes on eyes! - Dr. Samina F Zamindar
India is a diabetic capital of the world. 62 million people in India suffer from diabetes. Out of that it is shown that one third of the people will develop some complications of diabetes. One third, means 20 milllion. It is our duty as eye doctors to spread the message too all those 20 million people that diabetes can affect your eyes. If you are under that notion that your vision is good and why you need to visit an eye doctor. Your retina could have been affected even if your central vision is normal. This is the right time to meet your eye doctor. Any laser treatment for prevention can be done to prevent the progression of the problem in the retina has to be done now when most of your good vision is still there. Diabetes can affect most of the end organs of the body and these are the kidney, brain, liver including the retina of eye. These are very vital organs. How diabetes affects the retina? It affects the smaller blood vessels of the retina, makes them leaky, creates area of ischemia, that is less blood supply and as compensatory mechanism, retina now develops newer fragile blood vessels. These will bleed easily causing a complicated retinal disease. If you are diabetic, ideally when you are diagnosed as diabetic, you have to meet the eye doctor. Keep meeting the eye doctor once a year. So you can enjoy good vision even if you are diabetic.
