What is a Clearpath DS-120 eye exam?

The eyes can tell doctors a lot about what is going on in someone’s body. There is even an eye exam that can give doctors an early heads up that you could be developing diabetes. This exam is known as a Clearpath DS-120 eye exam. The name of this exam comes from the name of the machine that is used to perform the test. This machine can actually detect diabetes early and prevent complications and in some cases allow doctors to prevent the complete onset of the disease. When you receive a Clearpath DS-120 eye exam the machine will let doctors know if there are abnormal amounts of glucose in the blood. The most amazing part about this exam is that there is no need for blood to be drawn. The exam is non-invasive. Be sure to ask for a Clearpath exam when you set up your appointment.
