Diabetes Eye Exams at Point of Care
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of vision loss among people with diabetes¹
Up to 50% of Americans with diabetes were not tested for diabetic retinopathy, despite the known risk of vision loss.³
More than 2 in 5 Americans with diabetes have some stage of diabetic retinopathy¹
Patients may not have any symptoms in the early stages of the disease¹
95% of vision loss can be prevented with early detection²
