After receiving a diabetes diagnosis, there will be many changes you will need to adapt into your life, including taking control of your eye health. By maintaining regular eye exams with our optometrist, you can decrease the chances of developing eye diseases.
Diabetic retinopathy occurs when too much sugar in your blood blocks the vessels behind your retina. Your eye then grows new blood vessels in an attempt to compensate, but these new vessels are delicate and can leak blood and fluids into your retina, causing further damage.
If left untreated, the disease can lead to blindness.
People diagnosed with diabetes are twice as likely to develop open-angle glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is the slow damage of your optic nerve, causing vision damage.
Examining Your Eyes
Complete Family Eyecare uses state-of-the-art technology to diagnose eye diseases caused by diabetes.
OCT (Optical Coherence Technology) is an imaging technology used to obtain high-resolution cross-sectional images of your retinas, which are located at the back of your eye.
Visual field tests are used to determine the entire visual field you might have when you are focusing on a single object. The visual field includes not only how well you can see the object you are focusing on, but also how well you see above, below, and to each side of the object.

If you have been recently diagnosed with diabetes, take the time to book your next appointment. Eye exams can protect your vision and detect signs of disease before it causes permanent damage to your vision.

“Dr. Chatoo is by far the kindest and most down-to-earth physician I have ever met. My cousin liked the glasses I got from her office so much that she called Dr. Chatoo to see if she could get herself a pair. Dr. Chatoo actually took the time to help my cousin find the glasses again, calling multiple different places and placing the order for her. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients, and I will be her patient for life. Thank you so much, Dr. Chatoo!”
“Had the best experience. Very chic and friendly place. Roya is one of the most friendly assistants. I came here for a visit before returning to uni, and she helped me get an appointment, AND my new eyeglasses ready all in less than a week. The doctor is also so detailed and helped explain everything concerning my eyes to me. Will definitely come back for my next check-up.”
