Diabetes may cause damage to your blood vessels in the retina which may lead to a loss in vision.
This disease can be treated, but it is best to monitor good blood sugar control to avoid the negative effects of diabetes.
We invite you to schedule an appointment with one of our diabetic doctors in Traverse City if you are experiencing any of these.
TC Eye offers intravitreal injections including Avastin®, Lucentis®, and Eylea®. Traverse City Eye is also proud to offer the area’s only Micropulse® laser treatment- subthreshold laser to minimize the need for intravitreal injections.
MicroPulse® allows the tissue to cool between laser pulses, minimizing or preventing tissue damage to the eye. These are true tissue-sparing capabilities for repeatable retinal laser sessions with new alternatives for refractory and sub-clinical edema. Treatment risks are reduced or eliminated, with increased patient comfort than with conventional, continuous-wave laser treatment. In many practices, MicroPulse® has now completely replaced conventional laser for macular edema resulting from diabetes or retinal vein occlusion.
Traverse City Eye is one of the most experienced practices in the Grand Traverse Region. Our eye doctors and exceptional staff provide you with the widest array of current options for optimizing your vision if you are a diabetic in the Grand Traverse area.
