A Closer Look at Diabetes & Your Vision
Diabetes can increase the risk of developing eye diseases such as myopia(nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), cataracts, presbyopia, and diabetic retinopathy, which is the primary vision care concern for patients with diabetes.
Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that can cause damage to the blood vessels of the retina. The initial stages of diabetic retinopathy may cause little to no symptoms.
However, as it progresses, it can cause changes in preexisting vision issues such as nearsightedness and farsightedness—leading to blindness.
Common signs and symptoms of diabetic retinopathy can include:
- Blurry vision
- Loss of central vision
- Flashes of light in field of vision
- Black spots or holes in vision
- Difficulty or inability to see colours
A comprehensive eye exam can help our team diagnose potential vision-threatening changes to your eyes and prepare a personalized treatment plan.

It was my first visit to the Office, and I was impressed. It is a very Professional Office, with nice staff. I was taken care of by Dr. Jennifer Duimering who I found to be Professional and efficient. I was able to understand all of her comments and explanations easily.
Dr D was wonderful with myself and my child. Victoria was also very lovely. My son has been talking about his trip to the eye clinic with excitement and is eager to wear the sunglasses they gifted him with great pride. Overall wonderful experience.
As always, the office is clean and inviting. The staff is very sociable and informative to any questions asked. Thank you for your help.
Wonderful service all round. Everyone was helpful and took the time to explain every step of the process, from examination to selecting the right glasses/lenses for me.

Dr. Sarah is always so enthusiastic and encouraging. My imaging was good and my eyesight has not really changed. She was so happy and congratulated me. I love having such an outgoing and enthusiastic doctor! I look forward to having an appointment every time!
Service was very friendly as always and so efficient. I feel confident in their care. Technician helping me with selecting eye glasses was very knowledgeable and really helped me to decide on the best ones for me
My experience was exceptional from when I first made my appointment and right through until I received my glasses. Thanks to all involved in my care.
Sarah is a very caring doctor. She goes above and beyond what one would expect from an exceptional optometrist. When she was unable to get me in to see my ophthalmologist she and her receptionist ensured I got the best care. I had an appointment at the Ivey Eye Institute the next day! Thank you!
Our experience with this office has been absolutely amazing!!
