Sherwood Park Diabetic Fair: Eye Screenings

Sherwood Park Diabetic Fair

The Sherwood Park Diabetic Fair takes place on Monday, April 30 and Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at Festival Place.

On Tuesday, May 1 between 9am-12pm, eye-bar optometrist, Dr. Ruby Mangat, will be on-site offering free eye screening with use of a retinal camera. This is a great way to learn more about how diabetes impacts your vision.

After your visit with Dr. Mangat, you can interact with other healthcare professionals to learn more about living with diabetes.

The Importance of Diabetic Eye Exams                          

Diabetes is on the rise in Canada and contributes to a large number of cases of vision loss and blindness each year.  Patients with Type-1 and Type-2 diabetes are equally at risk for developing diabetic eye disease problems such as: cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye, blurry vision and retinopathy.

All patients with diabetes are at risk of developing diabetic retinopathy, with the relative risk increasing over the life of the condition. Nearly half of all adults diagnosed with diabetes will show some stage of the disease within their lifetime. Elevated blood sugar levels or poor blood sugar control further increase this risk.

Approximately 10% of patients who develop diabetic retinopathy, will go on to develop proliferative diabetic retinopathy, a more serious form of the disease requiring aggressive treatment and management.

Autumn in Sherwood Park

Autumn is by far one of the most beautiful seasons in Sherwood Park. But along with the changing of the leaves, there is also a change in the height of the sun. With the sun being more along the horizon we are all more likely to be hit by the suns intensity and glare while driving.

Over the past few weeks we’ve watch drivers flip down their visors or squint their eyes to try and cope with the changing driving conditions. Not only does this create a dangerous driving situation due to the reduced visibility, but it can also be hard on your eyes.

So with the changing of the season eye-bar reminds everyone to make sure that they change and update their sunglasses. 

Stop by the store to talk with our licensed opticians about the benefits of polarized sunglasses. Besides, you're going to need them for your winter vacation!
