Daily Piece: Annual Diabetes Eye Exam

After being in clinic today, my mind is fixed on the importance of getting annual diabetes eye exam.  If you are a person with diabetes, do you make getting your annual diabetes eye exam a priority? I have two young adults with Type 1 diabetes who I have worked with for a few years who are now experiencing eye related complications from years of having glucose values that have been far out of target range.  The silver lining is that they are now aware of the reality of their current situation and can turn the ship around. Get eyes exam, become informed and turn the ship around.
