– Darren asks: Can you really detect Diabetes through an eye exam? Yes! Actually, you can. (scratching electronic music) Diabetes is a disorder that
affects our blood vessels. The eye is the only place in the body where a doctor can actually directly view your blood vessels. Therefore, if there are
problems that are happening because of Diabetes, your eye
doctor can detect them first. This should be a good reminder for you to get your annual exam
with your eye doctor. Thanks for stopping by. If you have an eye-related question, remember #AskAnEyeDoc.
