The incidence of diabetes is on the rise in the youth of the United States.
PURPOSE: Despite the increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) among children and adolescents, little is known about their risk of developing diabetic retinopathy (DR).
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the leading cause of new-onset blindness in adults. Telemedicine is a validated, cost-effective method to improve monitoring. However, little is known of patients’ attitudes toward telemedicine for DR. Our study explores factors that influence patients’ attitudes toward participating in telemedicine.
IMPORTANCE: Accurate documentation of patient symptoms in the electronic medical record (EMR) is important for high-quality patient care.
Low-vision rehabilitation (LVR) aims to improve the functioning of patients with chronic uncorrectable visual impairment.
In this study, teleophthalmology researchers at the Center for Eye Policy and Innovation compared remote, image-based patient consultations to in-person consultations at emergency department and inpatient hospital settings.
Cataracts are a leading cause of reversible blindness in India, where millions of people can be effectively treated for this condition with surgery.
