People With Chronic Eye Diseases Not Getting Recommended Eye Exams


People with chronic diseases such as diabetes, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration fall far short of having annual eye examinations. This, according to a study appearing in the October issue of Ophthalmology, points to the need for new approaches to enhancing long-term follow-up of those already in the health care system. Ophthalmology is the clinical journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Eye M.D. Association.
