Prevalence of Sight Threatening Diabetic Retinopathy Considerable

According to an article published Family Practice News, published by International Medical New Group on September 1, 2010, the rate of diabetic retinopathy may be 29% in adult diabetics pointing to a high prevalence of vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy in the United States.  "We are working very hard to help diabetic patients preserve their eye health and vision", said Francis A. D'Ambrosio, Jr., M.D.  "In order for us to be effective in providing advanced diagnostic testing and care for diabetic retinopathy, we need patients to help by maintaining good dietary control and their overall health." 

D'Ambrosio Eye Care provided Boston diabetic patients with complete diagnosis, treatment and management of diabetic eye problems.
