“Regular eye exams are the best way to help prevent vision loss from diabetic retinopathy,” said Satish Modi, M.D., a NY eye physician and surgeon in the Hudson Valley with offices in Poughkeepsie, Fishkill and Carmel, New York. “The eye examinations for diabetic retinopathy need to be thorough and when necessary include advanced testing such as retinal photography, fluorescein angiography and ocular coherence tomography in order to really document how the retina and it’s blood vessels are functioning,” Dr. Modi further explained. “Depending on the severity and the risk of progression of each patient’s diabetic retinopathy we will advise them of the frequency and intervals for their exams. But, patients with diabetes need to know that it is terribly important to keep their appointments.”
