    Hi Sysy,

    Did you know majority of Americans know that diabetes is the leading cause of preventable blindness but more than half do not know comprehensive eye examinations can detect diabetes? I saw your articles on Diabetes Daily and thought your readers would value new data from the American Optometric Association (AOA)’s annual Eye-Q® survey, which revealed misconceptions about diabetes-related eye health issues. See additional insights from the survey below-

    • Those living with diabetes are three times more concerned about the possibility of losing their vision than they are about kidney failure caused by complications.
    • While vision problems are a major side effect of diabetes, only 54 percent of people with diabetes who were surveyed regularly visit their doctor of optometry to understand the toll diabetes is taking on their overall eye health.
    • 79% of Americans don’t know that diabetic eye diseases have no visible symptoms.

    I would love to connect you with AOA President Andrea Thau, OD, to discuss these findings and the impact diabetes can have on vision. I have attached a press release below for more information.

    Look forward to speaking soon!
