November is National Diabetes Month

Diabetic eye disease, a leading cause of blindness, often has no early warning signs. Early detection, timely treatment, and appropriate follow-up care are the only ways to prevent vision  loss. 

During National Diabetes Month, the National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP) is encouraging you to spread the word about how people with diabetes can protect their vision. 

As a health professional or community leader, you are in a good position to encourage people to take steps to protect their vision. Help spread the word about diabetic eye disease with our latest educational resources.
