Get an Annual Dilated Eye Exam
It’s important to get a comprehensive eye exam with dilation every year to allow for a more thorough examination of your eye and to catch conditions early, before permanent damage is done. Some diabetic eye diseases have no signs or symptoms until they are too obvious to ignore, which might present as:
- Blurred vision
- Dark spots or "holes"
- Seeing an increased amount of floaters
- Poor night vision
This is why routine exams are so important—to help avoid vision loss and potentially catch these conditions early.
