Don't Lose Sight of Diabetic Eye Disease

Don't Lose Sight of Diabetic Eye Disease

Type of Outreach Material:

This is an awareness factsheet for people with diabetes about diabetic eye disease to prevent vision loss. Diabetic eye disease includes diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma. All people with diabetes need to get a dilated eye exam at least once a year to protect their vision. A Spanish-language version is also available. These formats have been developed by the National Eye Institute to encourage organizations to reproduce and share the factsheet.
