Diabetic eye disease
Diabetes can cause weakening of the blood vessels around the body, but importantly, inside the eye. Yearly checks of the back of your eye by your optometrist or ophthalmologist are essential to pick up any changes early. The appearance of any diabetic changes requires Dr Warrier to liase with, and seek input from your GP or endocrinologist who can offer advice regarding your blood sugar control, as well as other risk factors such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Dr Warrier offers diagnosis and treatment of any diabetic eye disease. Treatment may include laser therapy or injections of medicine into the eye, or a combination of the two.
