Diabetes and Vision Loss 101
Did you know that one in three Canadians is living with diabetes or pre-diabetes? Diabetes can cause uncontrolled bleeding in the retina, and puts people with diabetes at risk for losing their sight. In this webinar, Dr. Netan Choudhry will tell us how diabetes affects the eye, what you can do to take care of your eyes and what treatments are available if your sight is affected. Help us raise understanding of preventable vision loss this November for Diabetes Awareness Month!

A Q&A period will be included. Please email your questions in advance to education@fightingblindness.ca
