Glaucoma & Diabetes Screening
Nicknamed the ‘silent thief of sight’, if left untreated glaucoma causes blindness.
It’s extremely important for diabetics to have a regular eye examination.
Because most of its types typically cause no pain and produce no symptoms until noticeable vision loss occurs, it’s really important to have an eye examination, especially if you have a family history of glaucoma.
It’s very unlikely that someone with diabetes will suddenly wake up blind as the damage is gradual. That’s why going to your eye screening appointments is so vital and we can help you manage yourself in between appointments with advice.
