Dr. Amit Gupta, MD, FACS, Ophthalmologist, talks about how to manage blood sugars in diabetes and treatment options for diabetic retinopathy.

What is Local Ophthalmologist

If you have diabetes, it’s very important to work with a local ophthalmologist to ensure you aren’t experiencing diabetes-related complications such as diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. A local ophthalmologist is a doctor who performs surgery on patients who have eye conditions or diseases. A local ophthalmologist is different from a local optometrist, because a local ophthalmologist can perform surgery. If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, blood glucose control is very important. Patients with poorly controlled blood glucose levels are at a higher risk of developing foot problems, diabetic retinopathy, kidney and heart disease, glaucoma and more. If your local family physician thinks that you could benefit from seeing a local ophthalmolobist, they can refer you.

Seeing your local ophthalmologist and/or local optometrist is one of the ways you can ensure that your blood glucose levels are well controlled and you can protect your kidneys and other organs. In addition, a local optometrist or ophthalmologist can be the first person to detect diabetes in the blood vessels in the back of the eye. If you have more questions about how a local ophthalmologist can help you manage your diabetes and detect diseases such as glaucoma, talk to your local pharmacist, family physician or local endocrinologist. You’ll receive your intravitreal eye injections at the ophthalmologist’s office, and the procedure will take between 15 and 30 minutes.
