Diabetic Eye Disease Book

Don't Go Blind From DiabetesMillions of people go blind from diabetes.  Make sure you’re not one of them.  In this book, award-winning ophthalmologist, writer and educator, Dr. David Khorram serves as your guide, giving you the knowledge you need to keep your vision for a lifetime.

This easy to understand guide begins with a description of how the eye works and how diabetes causes damage, not just in the eye but throughout the body.  Dr. Khorram then discusses the stages of diabetic retinopathy, as well as other diabetic related problems such as cataracts, fluctuating vision and double vision.  Dr. Khorram goes on to explain the types of doctors that provide diabetic eye care, the details of the eye exam, and an overview of special eye tests that you may need to evaluate diabetic eye disease.  A separate section discussed treatment of diabetic eye disease, including laser treatment, surgery, and the use of revolutionary new drugs such as Avastin which can stabilize and even reverse vision loss. Finally, Dr. Khorram touches on issues related to control of diabetes and other health problems that can play a major role in helping you prevent blindness.
