Help you community. Learn about Diabetic Retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy affects minority populations with diabetes at a higher rate than other populations. More and more people are being diagnosed with diabetes, which means more people are at risk for diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a very serious eye condition that can cause vision loss and even blindness, which is why it is crucial that everyone who has diabetes get a vision screening every year. Please follow the link to access educational and informative handouts that explain why these crucial eye exams are important for everyone who has diabetes, and especially important for minority populations.
