Diabetic retinopathy is the 6th major cause of preventable blindness. Some of the studies done in south India have shown prevalence of mild diabetic eye damage among diabetics as 26.8% to 30.4%, and severe form as 3.4%, with estimated 40 million diabetics in our country in the year 2007, and expected to double by 2030.
It is indeed sad to hear patients saying “ I did not know that diabetes could cause vision loss, and it is possible to prevent it by regular retinal examination and timely laser treatment. Had I known that, I would not be blind today.”
We have Diabetic Eye care Center providing all the facilities in one place.
Diabetes being a lifestyle problem is on the rise and so are its complications. Diabetic eye care requires screening and periodic monitoring with the help of serial fundus photographs.
