Making the Case for Early Recognition, Referral, and Treatment

Module 1 Case 4 CE Information
Overview

While there is no cure yet for diabetic retinopathy (DR), the best outcomes are in patients who are referred early for vision screening and treatment. Making sure patients with diabetes are following the recommended screening guidelines can help identify DR in its earliest stages and lead to earlier treatment to help preserve vision. Join Dr Vivian Fonseca as he discusses DR and how to educate patients on the importance of regular vision screenings.
