Strategies to encourage more patients to undergo eye tests

June 23, 2017

PHILADELPHIA — Education, along with a screening reminder card, may encourage more patients to get diabetic retinopathy eye screening exams, according to a presenter here at the annual meeting of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

The NIH has stated that early detection and treatment can reduce the risk of blindness from diseases such as diabetic retinopathy by 95%. In many instances, a comprehensive, dilated eye exam could detect the disease, which is often asymptomatic, while there are still treatment options to preserve vision.
