What Is Diabetic Eye Care?

There are several types of diabetes, and all of them put you at equal risk of developing diabetic eye diseases that can lead to blindness. And often, you won’t notice symptoms until damage is done. That’s why we use advanced technology to monitor your diabetes, blood sugar, and any effects diabetes has had on your eyes — when we see signs of concern early, we can act long before they affect your vision. We’re here to be your partners in diabetic eye care: we’ll customize your management plan and update it as your eye health changes to ensure your vision is as clear and comfortable as possible.

Why Choose Missouri Eye Consultants for Diabetic Eye Care?

At Missouri Eye Consultants, your health is always the top priority of our skilled and compassionate team. We document all the changes in your eye, before they can affect your vision, using retinal photos, and also offer optical coherence tomography screening, which provides us with 3D photos of the inside of your eye for a more complete picture of your eyes. Between our specialist eye doctors and modern diagnostics, we’ll notice anything out of the ordinary during your diabetic eye exam, and can take all the proper steps to protect your eye health and sight.

We make diabetic eye care simple — whichever of our offices you visit throughout the state, you can count on getting personal care and tailored treatments. Our patients come to Missouri Eye Consultants so they can rest assured that their eyes are in good hands.

“Dr. DeRose has provided exceptional expertise at a much needed time. He was able to diagnose my condition when my doctor, ER docs, etc. couldn’t. Then he didn’t just stop there. He went out of his way to make sure I was cared for. It’s humbled me how he’s cared for me like a family member of his own. I will forever be indebted to him for helping me at a difficult time. I will always go to him for all my eye care needs and send him many recommendations.”

“Was my first visit to the Ashland location. Staff was very friendly. Had been with Dr. Nichols until his recent retirement, and was pleased with Dr. Gamble.”

“I always receive a thorough exam from Vision Health Eyecare and feel that Dr. Don Vanderfeltz is very knowledgeable and a leader in his field. He does a good job at educating me about the condition of my eyes and providing eye care solutions. I entrust my vision to him. His staff also are very helpful and accommodating. The community of California, as well as surrounding areas, are very lucky to have such skilled eye care available to them.”
