Diabetes can affect the health of your heart, liver and other organs, but did you know diabetes can affect your vision as well?

You may have heard of nearsightedness and farsightedness before, but what are they really? Both are some of the most common forms of visual problems we encounter in our office and are very common among patients.

Farsightedness is its opposite as objects farther away will be clear, while those close are blurry.

At Optical Masters, we perform comprehensive exams that help us keep your eyes healthy.

he American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends an annual eye exam for any adult who wears eyeglasses or contacts. If you don’t normally need vision correction, you still need an eye exam every year. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders, because many diseases can have an impact on vision and eye health.
