Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is a complication of high blood sugar levels from diabetes that can damage the retina and cause problems with vision. Screening dilated eye exams, early recognition and timely treatment is important to preventing vision loss that can be associated with DR.

Learn more about how DR develops and is treated, screening guidelines and collaborative care strategies, as well as access point-of-care tools to enhance patient education by exploring different topics within the portal. High-definition animations, apps and other tools for your mobile phone about DR, related symptoms, treatment and multidisciplinary management can be found in HD Visual Learning.
