To raise awareness of the awful, life-altering ramifications of diabetes, we thought we’d do our part and let you in on a little secret.
(Without asking, your eye doctor can tell you if your diabetes is under control.)
How could this be possible?
By design, our eye’s pupil allows a 'window' into the back surface of the eye, called the retina. Where else in your body can your doctor take a look from the outside, and tell you what is on the inside?
But, what is your eye doctor looking for exactly?
If blood sugar levels are high, it will start to damage the blood vessels in the retina. When the blood vessels start to leak blood and other fluid, this is called, Diabetic Retinopathy. If left untreated, it will cause blindness.
Come and see for yourself!
Dr. Wood offers FREE high definition digital scans of the back of the eye as part of your comprehensive eye exam.
I’d like to make a motion.
That is: to NOT LET diabetes win.
Who’s with me?
Remember, your eyes will tell the truth, even if you don’t.

"Great clinic! The staff and Dr. Wood is very professional and thorough. They ensured all out needs were met. Dr. Wood has an excellent bedside manner and explained everything thoroughly and I felt he was genuinely concerned for me and my children."
"I just recently bought a pair of prescription glasses as well as sunglasses. Extremely satisfied w both. The quality of the lens is fantastic. Marsan was very patient and helpful when trying on new glasses. Went back to pick up and experienced the same kind treatment from Diego. Would highly recommend Wood Vision Source"-Adriana Garza"Bobby Wood Jr. OD was very detailed in the explanation of his assessment of my eye health and medical plan of care. He gave his time to answer my questions and concerns. Ruben Ayala was excellent with my eyeglass fitting, and went above and beyond to assure my new Rudy Project glasses would arrive before my upcoming bicycle tour. The entire staff was courteous and professional. Thank you for your up to date and cutting edge care and technology!"-Kimberly Cass Fulton
