BLOOD SUGAR AND YOUR EYES
High blood sugar, and the related condition called diabetes, affect your entire body. High blood sugar can damage tiny blood vessels in your eyes, resulting in a condition called diabetic retinopathy. High blood sugar can also lead to or aggravate other serious eye conditions, like cataracts and glaucoma. Without proper care, these conditions may result in vision loss and even blindness.
Extensive training, experience, and modern technology allow our ophthalmologists to monitor and treat the effects of high blood sugar and other eye conditions.
The bottom line is that regular eye exams with an ophthalmologist help you protect your eyes.
At Thomas & Thomas Ophthalmology, you will be seen by one of our ophthalmologists. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor with advanced training in diagnosing and treating serious eye conditions, like those resulting from high blood sugar.
Our doctors use state-of-the-art testing equipment, including ultra-wide angle retinal imaging and full field electroretinography, to monitor and protect the health of your eyes.
We are committed to providing comprehensive care for our patients and to helping them preserve and enhance their vision.
COVERAGE AND COST
Most exams and testing related to diabetes and corresponding conditions are covered by medical insurance. This means that the exam is paid for once you have met any deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance.
The insurance process can be stressful and difficult to navigate, and our practice is committed to helping you through it, whether that means providing you with an estimate prior to your exam or submitting and following through with claims on your behalf. Our goal is to be accessible and available to help you.
If you do not have insurance, let us know. Let us help you get the care you need at a reasonable cost.
