Program Overview

Learn about the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diabetic macular edema, for diabetes educators.

Program Purpose

According to the CDC, diabetes is the leading cause of new blindness in the United States, with clinically significant Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) contributing greatly to this vision loss. Over 9% of patients with diabetes will be affected by DME, with approximately 75,000 new cases each year. Diabetes educators have the opportunity to positively influence these statistics by encouraging their patients to seek out the proper eye examinations, be aware of their susceptibility and to recognize the signs of DME.

Activity Type:

This recording of an online presentation is a knowledge-based learning activity.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
• Describe eye conditions that lead to blindness in the younger population.
• Discuss the advantages of early diagnosis and treatment to prevent or delay vision loss.
• Explain the value of using dilating eye exams in diagnosing DME.
• Identify early treatment options of diabetic retinopathy that can prevent severe vision loss.
• Review the causes and symptoms of diabetic retinopathy.
• Describe the management of different comorbidities that, if under control, can prevent vision loss.
• Discuss the value of an annual vision exam for patients to decrease diabetic retinopathy.
• Identify prevention and treatment options to reduce diabetic retinopathy.
