Diabetic Vision Loss: Prevention & Management

Did you know that one in three Canadians live with diabetes or pre-diabetes? Diabetes can cause uncontrolled bleeding in the retina, putting people with diabetes at risk of losing their eye sight. Join FBC this November for Diabetes Awareness month to find out more about how diabetes can affect your vision.

In this informative session, Dr. Bernard Hurley will talk about steps you can take to prevent diabetic eye complications. If you are affected by diabetic retinopathy or diabetic macular edema (DME) strategies for managing these conditions will also be discussed.
