Diabetes creates a number of health complications, including risks to your ocular health. You are at higher risk for heart disease, kidney failure, nerve damage, and infections.

For our patients with diabetes, we tailor the exam to your specialized needs. When you visit our clinic, be sure to mention your condition to your optometrist. Our comprehensive eye exam gets just a little more specific for you. One key difference is that you require yearly dilated eye exams, which are covered by Alberta Health Care.
