Laser Eye Center Promotes Vision Education for Diabetes Awareness Month
Date:11/12/2013

Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

As part of November’s Diabetes Awareness Month, Laser Eye Center is promoting the increased education of diabetic retinopathy, its symptoms and treatment. Laser Eye Center offers laser eye surgery to all of Southern California and promotes optical health and proper care whenever possible. While Laser Eye Center does not perform diabetic retinopathy tests on-site, studies have shown that sight problems in as much as 90 percent of cases can be reduced through proper care and attentiveness.

Diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association, affects almost 26 million Americans. Diabetic retinopathy occurs in almost 80 percent of all diabetics who have had the disease for at least 10 years. As diabetic retinopathy is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide, many sufferers may look to laser eye surgery at Laser Eye Center as an option. However, LASIK and similar surgeries are not always possible for diabetics and LASIK surgery cannot cure diabetic retinopathy.

Laser Eye Center uses the most advanced equipment and techniques to restore clear vision to patients throughout Southern California. Another leading cause of blindness worldwide, cataracts, can be detected during the eye exam at Laser Eye Center. Diabetic retinopathy has no symptoms in its initial phase and can only be detected using fundus photography. Laser Eye Center recommends that all diabetics undergo eye exams at their preferred optical health professional’s to check for signs of the disease.

While LASIK eye surgery cannot cure diabetic retinopathy, it can restore vision to those suffering from myopia, astigmatism higher- and lower-order aberrations and other vision problems. Laser Eye Center offers numerous discounts and specials in order to promote laser eye surgery. All-Laser Custom LASIK, an advanced form of standard LASIK eye surgery, is available with financing at $58 per eye per month.

To learn more about Diabetes Awareness Month, Laser Eye Center recommends visiting the website of the American Diabetes Association. For those interested in learning more about LASIK eye surgery, please Contact Laser Eye Center.
