Have you ever wondered why you always have to go back to the eye doctor even when they tell you your results are good? We’re inviting Dr. Robert Miller, an expert ophthalmologist and medical school buddy of Dr. E, to explain why it’s important for people with diabetes to keep up with their annual eye exams, and discuss all factors that could affect your eye health.

  • What are the causes of diabetic eye disease?
  • What are the risk factors for diabetic eye disease?
  • How does blood pressure relate to eye disease?

  • Why is a routine eye exam so important?
  • What happens at a routine eye exam?
