Diabetic Eye Exams In Punta Gorda
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 100 million Americans are currently suffering from diabetes or prediabetes. And in Florida alone, this number is 2.5 million people, with almost 25% of cases being undiagnosed.
These are startling numbers. Not only does this put people at a much higher risk for vision loss, but diabetes is linked to heart and kidney disease, stroke and other conditions.
That’s why at Bayside Eye Center, we cannot stress enough how important frequent and comprehensive Diabetic Eye Exams are for patients that already have the disease, and for those who are borderline diabetics and require more rigorous eye testing and diagnosis.
