Focus on Diabetic Eye Disease

November is Diabetes Awareness Month. How does it affect your eyes?

November is Diabetes Awareness Month and Dr. Neal Palejwala of Retinal Consultants of Arizona talks to us about how they are fighting Diabetic Eye Disease. As a disease, diabetes is growing exponentially among the US population and many do not know that it can cause blindness/severe vision loss. Phoenix is the location of some of the most advancement treatments in diabetic eye disease along with the knowledge that Phoenix is home to the Retinal Research Institute, the nation’s largest independent clinical research facility focusing exclusively on retina diseases such as diabetic retinopathy. Early detection and intervention can make the difference in saving vision loss due to diabetes. There is cutting edge research taking place for diabetic eye disease right here in the Phoenix valley.
