Early detection and treatment of diabetic eye disease can prevent blindness, yet many persons with diabetes lack regular eye care.
This study followed 569 people with diabetes participating in blindness prevention programs during 1985 through 1987 ; it was found that 35% of subjects received dilated eye examinations before entering the programs, in comparison with 60% afterward.
About 85% of participants referred for proliferative retinopathy treatment began such treatment, and, of these, 85% completed treatment.
