Viadrop proudly acknowledges November as National Diabetes Month! We also want you to know that November is also Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness month!
Diabetic eye disease, caused by diabetes, causes tens of thousands of people each year to become blind or have permanent vision loss. Because of the high risk for eye disease, the American Diabetes Association recommends that all people with diabetes age 30 and older should get an annual dilated eye exam. For people with diabetes younger than 30, an annual dilated exam is recommended after they have had diabetes for 5 years.
Observe Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness month with us, and schedule a complete dilated eye exam soon!
