Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment
in Salt Lake City, Utah

Diabetic retinopathy is a serious eye condition that can lead to significant vision loss when diabetes, and its effects on the body, are not well-managed. With our experienced doctors, advanced disease detection, and customized management plans, Standard Optical can help keep diabetes’ effects on the eye at bay so you can continue to see clearly for years to come.

Diabetic Retinopathy

What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that results from high blood sugars creating damaged blood vessels in the back of the eye. These can swell and leak near the retina, which sends images you see to your brain; by the time you have noticeable symptoms like blurred sight, you may have permanent vision loss. People with any form of diabetes — type 1, type 2, or gestational — may develop this condition. Your risk depends on how long you’ve had diabetes, and whether it’s carefully managed.

What Causes Diabetic Retinopathy?

High blood sugar from diabetes can cause blood cells to swell, which can clog arteries and limit blood flow. Excessive swelling can even burst blood vessels, causing blood to leak and damage the retina, resulting in blurry vision. You may have a higher chance of developing diabetes depending on your age, ethnicity, lifestyle, and family medical history — and anyone with diabetes is at risk of developing diabetic retinopathy and vision loss. Thankfully, these conditions can be managed!

Early Detection is Essential

At first, diabetic retinopathy may not have any symptoms — so annual eye exams are imperative to diagnose the condition early, before it can impact your quality of life. Our doctors use state-of-the-art technology to thoroughly evaluate your inner eye, helping us catch and start protecting your vision as soon as possible!

If diabetic retinopathy is detected, our optometrists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan best suited for your needs. Based on your age, medical history, and case severity, we’ll recommend a combination of solutions, often including specialized supplements and regular eye exams, to regulate your blood sugar levels.

We also suggest consulting with your primary doctor to ensure your eye health is accounted for in your diabetes treatment, and we can help co-manage your care with them. Eating a balanced diet, staying physically active, and consistently taking diabetic medications can control your diabetes and slow diabetic retinopathy progression to prevent loss of eyesight — and we can help you create that comprehensive management plan.

Great service at this place, highly recommended! My glasses broke while being on holiday and the ladies here very kindly helped by switching glasses from another frame I had with me. This wasn’t easy as the glasses and frame did not fit very well. They managed however and within 10 minutes I was able to see again and continue to enjoy my holiday. They even provided me with cleaning materials. Go here for any eye support!
