Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of permanent vision loss in the United States. As such, we take this condition very seriously.
If you are being treated for diabetes, we will perform a diabetic eye exam. This includes a detailed retinal examination, retinal photography, a retinal OCT as needed, and a letter to your doctors explaining our findings.
ALL diabetics should see their eye doctor once a year to monitor for diabetic retinopathy!
If you have a true ocular emergency after hours please call 804-595-2020 and follow the prompts to contact a doctor. If the doctor cannot respond in a timely manner, please find the nearest emergency room.
