Hello, my name is Dr. Steven Reinders optometrist
and owner of the eye clinic located in Burnsville, In recent years, there has been a dramatic
increase in the incidents of diabetes in the general population. Diabetes can cause significant retinal disease
which can be visually devastating. Diabetes can also increase the risk of glaucoma
and cataracts. If you or a family member has been diagnosed
with diabetes, it’s important you have your eyes thoroughly examined by an experienced
optometrist,having an eye exam performed at least once per year. Thanks for listening
