Laser Eye Therapy

Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, but a new therapy could stop the eye damage.
(KPLC)  Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness. It is something that can oftentimes be diagnosed during an eye exam as an eye doctor sees cholesterol build-ups and abnormal blood vessels inside the eye.

Rogelio Gonzalez, of Lake Charles, never thought he had a problem with his vision or health until a routine eye exam nine years ago. "When they came in and checked my eyes, they discovered that I had diabetes," he said.

When it came to Gonzalez's vision, some of the damage to his eyes had already been done - something ophthalmologist Alan Lacoste sees daily in diabetics at The Eye Clinic.
