Diabetes and Your Eye Health

OPSM

Diabetes is one of the leading cause of preventable blindness in New Zealand1.

 

It is estimated that the number of individuals in New Zealand diagnosed with diabetes exceeds 200,000 people (predominantly type 2 diabetes)2.

 

Despite this, many of us are still unaware of the damage diabetes can do to our eye health. Diabetes may cause diabetic retinopathy, a condition that occurs when high blood sugar damages the fine blood vessels of the eye which may lead to, bleeding, swelling and inflammation. Untreated, it can cause vision loss or even blindness.

 

At OPSM, our Ultra-Wide Digital Retinal Scanners capture 80% of your retina, so we can detect and monitor diabetic retinopathy. With early detection, we can refer for treatment and slow the onset of symptoms. Don’t risk something as precious as your eyesight.

 

If you have any of the above symptoms, book an eye test with your OPSM optometrist today*

 

*OPSM recommends that you schedule regular visits with your optometrist based on your eye health needs.
