“1.7 million Australians have diabetes, 500,000 of them don’t know they have it and may take up to 7 years before they get diagnosed. Diabetes has become a global epidemic and its vast critical significance to our overall eye health cannot be ignored. There are certain things we ought to know, things we ought to start doing and things we ought not to ignore to be one step ahead of diabetic eye diseases before they steal our most precious sense—our sight. Our little guide will help you understand better.”
“Diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and is the leading cause of blindness in people with diabetes. Controlling diabetes by taking medications as prescribed, staying physically active and maintaining a healthy diet is important, but there’s one more thing you should not neglect! If you have diabetes, know a loved one who does, or are generally healthy now but are diagnosed to have pre-diabetes, you will benefit much from our guide.”
“The longer you’ve had diabetes, the higher your chances of developing diabetic eye diseases. Without the proper diagnosis and treatment, diabetic eye diseases can lead to severe vision loss and blindness. As your local optometrists committed to stop vision loss by all means and in all patients, we made this guide for you to be aware of the different vision complications associated with diabetes and what you can do to prevent them.”
