Screenings for Diabetic Retinopathy — Now Available in Primary Care with IRIS

  • Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of preventable blindness in the United States in people 20 to 65 years of age.
  • The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that anyone with diabetes receive a retinal eye exam every year.
  • Early detection can reduce the risk of severe vision loss by 90% and significantly reduce long-term healthcare costs.
  • Unfortunately, fewer than 50% of patients with diabetes get a diabetic eye screening annually.
  • An IRIS retina exam is painless, takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and is administered in a primary care physician’s office.
 

An IRIS diabetic population management expert is available now to speak with you about your needs, and discuss if IRIS is right for your organization.
