October is Blindness Awareness Month

What does that have to do with diabetes? A lot actually – diabetes is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness among adults here in the U.S. 

Over time, high blood sugar levels from diabetes can lead to damage of the retina, the layer on the back of the eye that captures images and sends them to the brain.

Eye damage can be occurring without any initial symptoms! That is why it is so important for people with diabetes to get regular eye examinations and catch problems before serious retinal changes occur.

"I so appreciate this entire team - I've seen Drs Wallace and Schneider - couldn't have had better care for my retinal detachment. As a nurse, I love that I am asked to confirm my DOB with each encounter. It is clear this has been hard-wired into your workflow. Everyone is friendly and professional."
