Webinar Credits: 1

It remains clear that although diabetes is a systemic disorder, the manifestations of diabetic complications will occur without optimal glycemic and blood pressure control. Optometrists can help continually reinforce that message by educating patients about the necessity for ongoing and yearly dilated eye exams, and discussing the potential treatments should vision loss become obvious.

The target audience for this CE Activity is Optometrists.
