FREE LUNCH & LEARN: Diabetes and Your Eyes

A Free Lunch & Learn hosted by Eye Consultants of PA

If you are diabetic, or a caregiver to someone who is diabetic, this free Lunch & Learn program by Eye Consultants of PA is important.

Join Dr. Anastasia Traband to learn about diabetic retinopathy. It’s just one disease that can ruin the eyesight of a diabetic, and it can begin prior to any outward signs of diabetes. In fact, diabetes can lead to a number of eye conditions, including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataract and glaucoma. And all forms of diabetic eye disease have the potential to cause severe vision loss and blindness.

So what can you do? What are your options and the latest science? Bring your questions
and listen to a diabetic eye disease expert to get in-the-know.
