ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION AND PURPOSE
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a growing epidemic that threatens vision for millions of Americans. Optometrists have an integral role in bridging the gap between the latest research on DR and effective, patient-centered care. As part of a preventative, shared decision-making approach, the latest advances in retinal imaging should be used to detect and monitor DR while providing an important educational tool for patients. Accumulating evidence now suggests that DR should be treated at an earlier stage (moderate to severe nonproliferative DR) to most effectively avert vision loss from proliferative DR and center-involving diabetic macular edema. Translating these data to practice requires an individualized approach that takes into account patient factors and preferences. The desired results of this activity are to educate ophthalmologists and optometrists on the latest evidence supporting best practices in earlier treatment of DR and enable them to engage their patients in the development of care plans that can prevent vision loss.
