Nuretin

Nuretin for Diabetic Eye Health with Eye Care of
Virginia in Culpeper and King George, VA

Nuretin could preserve your eyesight by delaying the start of diabetic retinopathy. In those already diagnosed with this condition, this supplement could slow the progression of the condition. Ask our optometry specialist Dr. Miles Press at Eye Care of Virginia if this supplement is a good option to protect your eyesight.

Optometry in Diabetes Care

Though most people with diabetes don't think about vision care, they should. Diabetic retinopathy occurs within five years of a diabetes diagnosis in 38 percent of patients. It’s also the leading cause of blindness in people under 74. You may not even realize you have this condition until it's progressed to a severe state.

Early symptoms could include blurry vision, dark spots in your vision and a loss of central vision. Get to an eye specialist immediately if you notice any of these warning signs. As the condition progresses, it increases the harm to your vision.

With uncontrolled blood sugar levels, damage occurs to the blood vessels in the eye. This forces the eye to create new blood vessels, but there's only so much space available. More blood vessels increase pressure in the eye and eventually the retina detaches, potentially leading to blindness.

Only an optometry doctor, like Dr. Miles Press at Eye Care of Virginia, can diagnose diabetic retinopathy. Usually, this occurs during an eye exam wherein the doctor examines the blood vessels in your eyes. If you show signs of vision problems from diabetic retinopathy or have diabetes, he may recommend you supplement your diet.

How Nuretin Helps

Nuretin is different from other medications you've taken for diabetes. This is a medical food supplement. It's a proprietary DHA and EPA supplement that is formulated especially for diabetic patients. Studies have shown this supplement decreases the chance of developing diabetic retinopathy by 50 percent.

You can't get the same effect from an over-the-counter supplement. Absorbing the active ingredient, DHA, is difficult for up to three-fourths of diabetics. Since the body does not make DHA, you need to supplement your diet with it. This supplement has a special blend of DHA and EPA in a 5:1 ratio in a form that diabetics can better absorb. Getting these fatty acids into your body could protect your retinas, which have some of the highest concentrations of DHA in your body.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Press CARES about his patients, insurance or not AND he is the most thorough eye doctor I have ever been to. The prescription he gave me, made me see correctly, once again, I am so thankful. Dr Press and his staff are great!"
    Katrin H
  • "I'm so glad I changed eye doctors. I had been going to Dr. H by the hospital for a long time and he had given me a prescription for contacts that I tried and tried to wear with no success. Dr. Press gave the right "size" contacts and was able to walk out wearing the contacts with no problem! He has great manners and even took my blood pressure! Glad to have finally found a knowledgeable Optometrist I can SEE in a regular basis."
    Ines P
  • "I recently needed to change my vision prescription and was finally in need of bifocals. I went to see Dr. Miles Press for both convenience (local eye doctor) and because he accepted my insurance. I needed to have vision in my right eye adjusted several times, and several right lenses replaced. Dr.Miles Press worked tirelessly to make sure my vision was correct and I was never charged for each subsequent visit or lens replacement. I've never had an eye doctor like that before, that really cares and is fast and on the ball with knowledge to get you the correct prescription. He also cared that I went with Progressive lenses over bifocals because they provide three fields of view and eliminate the annoying line. To sum it up, an eye doctor that treats you like he would his own family is a rare experience. I will continue to go to Dr. Miles Press as long as he is in business and accepts my insurance. No question."
