Diabetic Hispanics Missing Out on Eye Exams
Date:7/14/2008

dents knew that controlling diabetes could prevent eye problems: 16 percent of non-diabetics with no family history, 28 percent of non-diabetics with a family history, 13 percent of newly diagnosed individuals and 34 percent of less recently diagnosed.

Perhaps most troubling, almost half of those who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes more than a year prior and 79 percent of those newly diagnosed had never had a dilated eye exam, which can detect problems before it's too late.

Only 30 percent of respondents with diabetes had undergone an eye exam in the past year, compared with 70 percent to 75 percent of Hispanics nationally.

More information

There's more on diabetes among Hispanics at the National Diabetes Education Program.
