Diabetic Eye Care

Posted on December 12, 2017

If you are diabetic, there is something you should know about your eyes. Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that can affect the retina and cause a loss of vision if not diagnosed and treated early. Tiny red dots, known as microaneurysms, are small retinal hemorrhages that develop in the eye, and can cause a lack of blood flow. When the eye is lacking blood flow, blood vessels can form in the wrong places in the eye and cause scaring and tearing of the retina, and this can result in vision problems.

But most people have heard that computer use should be limited after LASIK surgery. Dr. Stanley Teplick of Teplick Custom Vision, an NVISION Company, discusses LASIK and computer use with his Portland, OR patients, and offers them some reasonable guidelines to ensure that the eyes stay protected following LASIK treatment.
