Typically our diabetes patients have changes in vision and they totally ignore them. They blame it on age, environment, old glasses and any other excuse. We as medical professionals don’t stress the possible changes enough because we are more focused on things like neuropathy and kidney failure. This means that a lot of patients get all the way to macular degeneration before we get serious about their eyes, and then we have to try everything we can to help them.
This week, we have Part 3 of our exclusive interview from Dr. Paul Chous, as he looks at future treatments for diabetes-related eye diseases. If you did not get to see Part 1 and Part 2, then take a look.
