"Diabetes is an under-diagnosed disease and many of our patients are not even aware of their diabetic condition until they experience vision problems,"
shared Dr. Mani. "People with diabetes are 40% more likely to suffer from glaucoma and 60% more likely to develop cataracts. Diabetic retinopathy covers a range of conditions that affect the retina, some that can lead to complete vision loss."
Symptoms of diabetic retinopathy may include: Blurred vision; Vision fluctuations; Difficulties with color perception; Floaters or flashers; Dark spots in the visual field. Left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can result in a complete, irreversible loss of vision.
A graduate of prestigious Tulane School of Medicine, he completed his ophthalmology residency at the University of Louisville.
"When I was completing medical school, many of the advanced diagnostic tools we now use every day in our clinic did not exist,"
said Dr. Mani. "These remarkable systems can photograph and document even the tiniest of abnormalities. This gives us excellent insight into how to quickly correct problems as well as stop the progression of conditions that could result in vision loss or vision compromise."
Internationally known for their expertise in treating retinal and vitreous disorders, the ophthalmology team at California Retina associations are equally experienced in diagnosing and treating diseases and disorders occurring in any part of the eye.Majid Mani MD, FACS, FAAO
