A Better Way to Protect Vision in Patients Living with Diabetes eBook

A clinician explains to her patient how she will use the RetinaVue 700 to screen him for eye disease.

Diabetic retinopathy is a growing problem for patients and healthcare providers—it is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness among adults between 20 and 74 years of age.1 Up to 80% of type 1 diabetic patients, 84% of type 2 diabetic patients who take insulin and 53% of type 2 diabetic patients who do not take insulin will eventually develop some level of diabetic retinopathy.2
