Diabetic Laser Eye Surgery
Here at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis, we are proud to have the top Chesterfield laser eye surgeon
here on staff. We often treat patients with diabetes here at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis. Having diabetes puts your eyes at risk of developing a number of common, and potentially vision-threatening conditions, like glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Our Chesterfield laser eye surgeon can use laser surgery to treat many of these conditions and get your eyes back to the level of health and clarity that you deserve. For example, a popular treatment for diabetic retinopathy is laser photocoagulation. In this treatment, our Chesterfield laser eye surgeon uses a specialized laser technique in order to either seal or destroy any blood vessels in the retina that are abnormal and/or leaking. This laser surgery procedure is not painful and is only slightly uncomfortable at most. It is an important procedure that can save your vision from serious damage from diabetic retinopathy. If you are a diabetic patient, you should visit us here at the Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis of diabetic eye exams on a regular basis. These regular exams are crucial because they increase the likelihood that nay developing conditions will be diagnosed earlier than they might otherwise be. Early detection can allow for us to make quicker and more effective treatment decisions for you. In some cases, these early interventions can eliminate the need for surgical procedures, but in other cases surgery is necessary to fully address the condition at hand.
