Description

With the prevalence of diabetes in the United States increasing and expected to climb higher in coming years, eyecare practitioners should have a thorough understanding of the treatment and management of diabetic patients. Eyecare providers form part of a team of practitioners, that includes primary care medical doctors, endocrinologists, and podiatrists, who should be involved in the regular management of diabetic patients.

A detailed understanding of the clinical manifestations, treatment, and pathogenesis of diabetes is of importance to the primary eyecare practitioner. This document is designed to provide a fundamental and accessible resource for the clinician, with an emphasis on ocular signs and diabetic retinopathy.
