Diabetes is a disease that is related to high sugars. It can also affect the eye which is why it is crucial to have an annual eye exam. Dr. Alevi at South Bronx Eyes is trained to check the whole eye to make sure that there are no issues
During a diabetic eye exam, a drop will be placed to dilate the pupil. Then Dr. Alevi will examine the whole retina to make sure there are no signs of diabetic retinopathy. In addition, he will look under the slit lamp to make sure no cataract has formed. As in certain cases, cataracts can form due to high sugar levels. If needed, he may also take a fundus photo which is a picture of the back of your eye to document any issues. This thorough exam is why South Bronx Eyes is known for its reliable care and management.
