The clinic, Clear Eye Total Eye Care, provides annual diabetic exams that allow early detection and treatment for conditions that may arise and go unnoticed. Treatment for diabetes vision loss would typically begin with a retinal exam.

Diabetes and bad vision go hand in hand as diabetes affects many parts of the body, including the eyes. The disease affects the eye by increasing its chances of developing conditions like cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye complication characterized by damage to the blood vessels of the retina. This complication begins by affecting the vision mildly, but it can lead to blindness. Any person who has type 1 or types 2 diabetes can be affected, and the illness usually develops in both eyes.

Common symptoms of diabetic retinopathy include blurry vision, vision loss, floaters, and dark spots in one’s vision.

Carefully managing one’s diabetes is the ideal way of preventing vision loss. Seeing a doctor for an annual eye exam is recommended for diabetics regardless of the condition of their eyesight.

Clear Eye Total Eye Care provides specialized vision care for residents in the Boise and Eagle areas.

The clinic also offers comprehensive eye exams that include a thorough analysis of one’s vision and eye health, LASIK pre- and post-operative care, prescriptions, ocular disease management, and treatment for conditions, such as eye infections, foreign body removal, minor eye surgeries, reduction in vision, sudden loss of vision, and more.

The clinic’s owner and optometrist Dr. Blake Bingham is experienced in many aspects of eye and vision care, from routine eye exams and co-managing surgeries to diagnosing and managing diseases like those caused by diabetes.

“Diabetes and vision loss usually go together, which means that anyone who has diabetes should be proactive in seeking specialized eye care,” a company spokesperson said. “Diabetics can take comfort in the fact that early detection can save their vision. All they need to do is to act now.”
