Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month

Posted by CooperVision on Wednesday, November 2, 2011

November has been declared Diabetic eye Disease Awareness Month.  According to the American Diabetes Association diabetes can increase the risk of various eye complications, including glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy.

Visit the American Diabetes Association’s website for more information, including risk factors for the disease and to learn how early detection can be the key to maintaining good vision. Annual eye exams are important for adults as they may help detect diseases in the early stages. Contact your eye care practitioner today to schedule your next eye exam.
