Diabetic retinopathy is the largest cause of preventable blindness among working-age Americans. There are more than 24 million Americans currently living with diabetes, yet less than half of them are getting the yearly dilated eye exam that could prevent blindness. The American Academy of Ophthalmology’s new EyeSmart: EyeCommitted social media campaign reminds Americans that an annual dilated eye exam can help prevent vision loss in people with diabetes.
