Athol Eye Doctors Offer Free Diabetic Eye Problem Screening

D’Ambrosio Eye Care in Athol is offering free diabetic eye problem screenings to promote awareness of National Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month. “It is both surprising and disturbing that so many patients with diabetes still do not adhere to vision care guidelines for eye exams every year in order to prevent vision loss from diabetic eye disease”, stated Francis A. D’Ambrosio, Jr., M.D., Medical Director of D’Ambrosio Eye Care. “To that end our D’Ambrosio Eye Care Athol office will offer free diabetic eye problem screenings from 9 AM-Noon on Tuesday November 27, 2012, Tuesday December 4, 2012, December 11, 2012 and again from 9 AM-Noon on Tuesday, January 15, 2013."

Patients just need to contact the D’Ambrosio Eye Care office at

413 Main Street in Athol, Massachusetts


and requesting a free diabetic eye screening appointment.

"We are hopeful all patients with diabetes will consider taking the best possible care of their eyes in order to preserve their eye health and vision.”

As November has been designated as National Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month this is an important time to spread the word about this potentially blinding disease. “As part of Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month we want to urge all patients with diabetes or who are even pre-diabetic to have a dilated eye exam every year. The longer a person has diabetes, the greater his or her risk for developing diabetic retinopathy”, said Dr. D’Ambrosio Jr.

Staffed by a team of Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Opticians, technical and administrative staff who provide eye examinations for adults and children, cataract surgery and intraocular lens implants (IOL), laser vision correction such as LASIK, diagnosis and treatment of cornea disease including cornea transplants, care for diseases of the retina including diabetes and age related macular degeneration and diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma as well as contact lenses, eyeglasses, eyewear  and optical services.
