November is a time when communities across the country team up to bring attention to diabetes. Diabetes affects about 37 million Americans, including adults and youth. Diabetes can damage the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, and is linked to certain types of cancer.

This month, the White House acknowledges Americans living with diabetes who inspire us to develop better treatment options and make life-saving medicines more affordable. Read the proclamation here.

Enable Eye Screening for Everyone with Affordable Solutions from Optomed

In 2022, the number of diabetic patients seen in health centers has grown rapidly and one-third of diabetic patients suffer from diabetic retinopathy, the most common cause of vision loss in working-age adults. As the disease is asymptomatic in the early phases, all diabetics are in the need of regular eye screenings. Optomed’s handheld fundus camera, Optomed Aurora IQ, provides safe and accessible eye examinations that help with the early detection and care of patients with chronic conditions like diabetes.
