Dr. Powers' Story
Dr. Powers holds a special passion in his heart and practice for helping diabetics gain control of their diabetes and live a healthier life. It was Dr. Powers who discovered his own mother’s diabetes 20 years ago through an eye exam. She had no health issues or any signs of diabetes, but that exam verified she not only had diabetes but also diabetic retinopathy and was in danger of losing her vision. Her struggles with diabetes inspired Dr. Powers to dedicate his life and practice to helping those with diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration keep their vision and live a healthy life.
