Diabetes can cause diabetic retinopathy, ocular bleeding, and cataracts.  Diabetes can also accelerate other eye diseases such as glaucoma.  At Vista Eye Care in Thornton, Colorado, our eye doctors will thoroughly evaluate your ocular health and we will write a complete report for your primary care physician.  Maintaining a dialogue between your optometrist and your primary care physician is important to ensure that your health is properly cared for.

Cataracts are a common visual degradation that can affect vision.  Cataracts can cause blurred vision and night vision glare (especially noticeable when driving at night).  When a cataract becomes problematic, surgery may be a good option.  At Vista Eye Care, we will perform the necessary pre-operative testing and will see you for several follow-up visits after your surgery to ensure optimal recovery.  Our convenient location makes us an easy drive for all of your post operative visits.  We are easy driving from Thornton, Brighton, Westminster, and North Denver.

Please call our office today to schedule your diabetic eye exam or to care for your cataracts.
