Diabetes has become both a local and national health care crisis for Americans. A 2016 UCLA population study found that 46% (13 million Californians) are either pre-diabetic or diabetic. Diabetes is the leading cause of sight loss for adults ages 20-74.
Diabetes is the leading cause of sight loss in working age adults. We care for patients that are diabetic and pre-diabetic. Recent studies show that even those with pre-diabetes can show signs of damage to their eyes. Our goal is to help keep your sight by working with you and the others that assist in your care. Your eyes reflect your general health, thus when diabetes is not controlled it can first show up in your eyes.
