November is Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month

American Academy of Ophthalmology – People with diabetes are more likely to develop blinding eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and cataracts. Yet recent studies have revealed low awareness of the issue among ethnicities at higher risk for diabetes. With the findings signaling that many Americans may not be defending themselves against diabetes-related vision loss, the American Academy of Ophthalmology encourages those with diabetes to take proactive steps to protect their vision.

Early detection, timely treatment and appropriate follow up care are the only ways to prevent vision loss. ~ National Eye Institute
