Diabetic Eye Disease

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects the body’s ability to produce insulin to control blood glucose levels. Unregulated blood glucose levels can damage internal organs, such as the heart, kidneys, and blood vessels.
The small blood vessels in the eyes can be affected by spikes in blood sugar levels, which can lead to permanent vision loss. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) states that 90% of vision loss from diabetes can be prevented through proper monitoring and early detection.

Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye problems that can result from diabetes. These include:

It’s recommended that anyone with diabetes have fully comprehensive eye exams annually to detect early signs of diabetic eye disease. You can take the additional step of controlling your blood glucose levels by following a physician-guided diet and exercise plan.

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome can be a debilitating, progressive condition that causes significant discomfort.

Your eyes are kept lubricated by a film of liquid called the tear film. The tear film is made up of 3 parts:

  • An oily layer
  • A watery layer
  • A mucus layer

If one of the layers of your tear film is out of balance, it can mean that your eyes aren’t properly lubricated or that your tears evaporate too quickly, leading to dry, gritty eyes.

Dry eye syndrome is likely related to hormonal changes related to aging. Dry eye is particularly prevalent in women who’ve gone through menopause.

Other causes of dry eye syndrome include:

  • Underlying conditions, like rheumatoid arthritis
  • Blepharitis
  • Inward or outward-turning eyelids
  • Dry, windy, or smoky climates
  • Prolonged digital device use
  • Poor contact lens wear
  • Refractive surgery
  • Certain medications

Your optometrist can give you appropriate recommendations on how to mitigate symptoms and find relief.

Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management

Having your eyes properly monitored is the key to the early detection of eye diseases that may threaten your vision. Many eye diseases don’t show symptoms in the early stages, so it’s crucial to have an eye care professional take a closer look regularly.

Glaucoma is a progressive condition that occurs as a result of damage to the optic nerve. Typically, elevated intraocular pressure related to a build-up of fluid inside the eye causes optic nerve damage.

There are 2 main types of glaucoma:

  • Primary open-angle glaucoma
  • Angle-closure glaucoma

Age-related macular degeneration occurs when the central part of the retina, called the macula, becomes damaged. AMD can cause significant central vision loss and occurs most often in individuals 50 and older.

There are 2 types of AMD:

  • Dry AMD
  • Wet AMD

Regular comprehensive eye exams can help pinpoint early signs of eye disease.

Myopia Control

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive error that occurs when the cornea is too steep or the eye is too long.

A type of refractive error, myopia causes light to refract, or bend, incorrectly when it enters the eye. Objects at a distance appear blurred or out of focus, as the image rests just in front of the retina instead of directly on it.

Myopia affects an estimated 25% of Americans, requiring them to rely on corrective eyewear like glasses or contact lenses to perform daily activities.

Typically, myopia is inherited and is often discovered in children between the ages of 8 and 12. However, if caught early, various forms of myopia control can be used to halt the disease’s progression.

Forms of myopia control offered at Eyes on Westlake include:
