National Diabetes Month

National Diabetes Month


As U.S. waistbands expand, so do the numbers of people diagnosed with diabetes. In fact,21 million Americans have diabetes and one-third don’t know they have it. Because a diagnosis of diabetes can also bring with it the possibility of irreversible vision loss or total blindness, optometrists serve as a first line of detection for diabetes.

The American Optometric Association encourages the public to include optometrists in their team of healthcare professionals and to visit their optometrist regularly just as they do their primary care physician and dentist.
