If you have diabetes, it is likely you are aware of the various ways in which it can impact your general health. But did you know it could play a major part in your eye health as well? Our Kingwood eye doctor and the rest of the staff at Today’s Vision are here to help you navigate through any developing eye conditions that result from your diabetes, and also to aid in prevention as well. When your sugar levels rise to an abnormal state, damage can occur to the blood vessels located in the back part of your eye, known as the retina. When this kind of damage occurs, it is referred to as diabetic retinopathy.

Unfortunately, most cases of diabetic retinopathy are so gradual in their development that people either do not exhibit any symptoms, or do not exhibit symptoms until late in the disease’s development, once the patient’s vision has already begun to be compromised. However, if symptoms do occur, you will either notice especially blurry vision, fluctuating vision, or large floaters obscuring your vision. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Kingwood eye doctor right away for an evaluation. The best treatment for diabetic retinopathy is to prevent it from developing in the first place. In order to encourage prevention, you should do your best to carefully monitor your blood sugar levels and seek treatment if you are struggling to keep your blood sugar normal.

Another important part of prevention is to visit us at Today’s Vision for regular diabetic eye exams. Eye exams are important for everyone, but if you have diabetes, you should be especially conscious of how often you are getting your eyes checked out. Diabetic eye exams are tailored to the needs of diabetic patients, and aid in uncovering signs of diabetic retinopathy or other similar conditions as early on as possible in order to ensure the most effective treatment solutions.

Humble Eye Doctor

Do you find that your eyes are constantly red, itchy and watery? It may be that you are suffering from red eye syndrome. Many patients visit our Humble eye doctor at Today’s Vision because they are bothered by symptoms associated with red eye. We are here to give you the information you need about this common condition in order to recognize the symptoms in yourself and seek treatment if necessary. Red eyes can vary in their severity and how deeply they affect your day-to-day activities and functioning. There are several reasons why you may be experiencing red eye symptoms. One of the most common is as a result of allergies. If you find your eyes become red and itchy when you are exposed to certain allergens like pet dander, dust, pollen, or others, or if you experience the symptoms only during certain seasons, it is likely an allergic reaction.

Another common reason that red eye syndrome occurs is because of eye fatigue. If you are constantly staring at screens, or perhaps if you are in need of an update to your optical prescription, your eyes can become fatigued. Finally, if you use contact lenses and you wear them for most of the day or even overnight, you are likely to experience red eye symptoms and should try to cut down on your daily wear. If you think any of these situations apply to you, you should visit our Humble eye doctor so that we can evaluate the cause of your red eye symptoms and come up with a viable treatment option.

The recommendations our Humble eye doctor makes for treatment of your red eye symptoms at Today’s Vision will depend on your individual symptoms and their severity. For most people, treatment of red eyes is simple, unless the symptoms are the result of another, more complicated eye condition. Resting your eyes, applying a cold compress over your eyes, taking a break from contact lenses, using either over-the-counter or prescription eye drops, and medications is usually enough to give patients relief from their symptoms. We can give you a more personalized treatment plan during your next visit with us at Today’s Vision.
