The Fight Against Diabetic Retinopathy
Millions of people have been diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy, an eye disease that affects the blood vessels of the retina. According to the National Eye Institute, diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of blindness in working age adults ages 20-74. However, many people go undiagnosed due to a variety of reasons such as lack of time or money to seek proper screening. With diabetic retinopathy, it is important for the disease to be detected early so vision loss can be prevented.
To provide more opportunity for people to receive screening, Vantage EyeCare has joined forces with Topcon Healthcare to create a diabetic screening program with local primary care offices. Using Topcon’s fully automated retinal cameras, primary care providers can scan diabetic patients’ eyes in their office and have the images electronically sent to Vantage EyeCare for interpretation. This allows patients to receive immediate follow-up and treatment if necessary.
Collaborating with Topcon and primary care providers allows us to improve eye health within the many communities we serve.
