Diabetic Eye Exams are now offered at Illinois Retina Institute at 5016 N. University St. Ste 106 in Peoria from 8:30-11:30am the first Saturday of every month to all diabetics and newly diagnosed diabetics of all ages. A staggering 80% of all diabetics will get Diabetic Retinopathy (a vision impairment disease) and should have an annual dilated eye exam for early detection and treatment according to the American Diabetes Association. In Central Illinois alone, nearly 30,000 people have diabetes but may not realize they have diabetic retinopathy because it does not present any symptoms until it is already in the advanced stages where irreversible damage may occur. Our convenient Saturday appointments are quick, painless, super easy and are just 30 minutes. No referral is necessary. Call for your appointment today at 309-589-1880.
