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 right in a primary care physician’s office.





Dr. Sunil Gupta shares the IRIS team's vision of technology to find those at risk for blindness early so steps can be taken to save their eyesight.


We can end preventable blindness. Every day, healthcare providers around the United States are saving sight through early detection and better preventative care. Thousands of patients have now been screened at the point of primary care with IRIS.
