Helping You Feel at Ease

At Airdrie Family Eye Doctors, our experienced optometrists use modern technology to assess your eye health and search for any potential problems early on. We’ll take a detailed look at your retina, check your vision, and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.

What to Expect During Your Diabetic Eye Exam

First, we’ll review your medical history and ask about any symptoms you may be experiencing. Then, we’ll complete tests to assess your eye health. This may include one or several of the following tests:

Visual Acuity Test

The visual acuity test measures how well you can see at different distances.

This test involves the use of eye drops to dilate your pupils, allowing us to examine your retina and optic nerve more closely.

Tonometry measures the pressure inside your eye and helps detect glaucoma.

Advanced Technology for Diabetic Eye Exams

At Airdrie Family Eye Doctors, we use advanced technology to detect and monitor diabetic eye disease. 

With the help of our modern diagnostic equipment, we can detect diabetic eye disease at an early stage, often before serious symptoms are present. This allows for effective treatment and management of the condition and can help prevent the further development of eye conditions.

The technology we may use during your diabetic eye exam includes:

Optomap Technology

Optomap technology uses a scanning laser to capture a detailed, panoramic image of your retina, which can help our optometrists detect early signs of conditions like diabetic retinopathy.

OCT uses light waves to create a detailed image of your retina, allowing our optometrists to detect and monitor changes in the thickness of your retina and fluid retention to monitor the health of your eyes and look for signs of conditions like diabetic retinopathy.

What Happens After a Diabetic Eye Exam?

After your exam, we’ll discuss our findings with you and develop a plan for any necessary treatment or monitoring. We may recommend lifestyle changes to help support your eye health and reduce the risk of future eye problems.

If we detect any signs of diabetic eye disease, we can help you determine the next steps for treatment. Our team can work closely with you and your primary care provider to offer the best possible care for your eyes and overall health.
