Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month at HEC – November 2020

People with diabetes are more likely to develop blinding eye diseases. These diseases include glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Many Americans may not be protecting themselves against diabetes-related vision loss. There is also a low awareness of diabetic vision issues among ethnicities that are at a higher risk for diabetes. 

Schedule an appointment today to be proactive about your risks. Our Ophthalmologists are here to help and encourage patients to be proactive when protecting their vision.

October is Safety Awareness Month

October is Safety Awareness month! Remember to protect those precious eyes during sporting activities, home improvement projects, and even while working long hours on the computer with blue light filtering anti-reflective coatings.

Did you know? Half of all eye injuries happen in and around the home.
