How Diabetes Affects Your Vision
Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that causes damage to the blood vessels of the retina. The early stages of diabetic retinopathy may display no symptoms, but permanent vision loss or blindness can result if the condition is left untreated.
While you may not develop symptoms in the early stages of diabetic retinopathy, as it progresses, you may develop:
- Floaters in your vision
- Fluctuating vision
- Blurred vision
- Vision loss
The appearance of these symptoms is a good indication to book an appointment with us and get the right treatment plan in place.
What to Expect During a Diabetic Eye Exam
At Toronto Medical Eye Associates, we assess the health of the blood vessels through a dilated eye examination and provide a thorough assessment of your health. To do this, we use diagnostic technology to help us get a clear picture of your unique visual situation.
Optos Retinal Imaging
We offer optomap retinal imaging as an essential part of our eye exams.

Optical Coherence Tomography with Angiography Capability
Humphrey’s Visual Field
A visual field maps out your peripheral vision using a center fixation light and blinking lights. The patient is instructed to always focus on the center fixation light and press the button when the blinking test light is seen with your side vision.
