Date:11/15/2007

~Eye Care Practices throughout North America to Participate in Optos

Diabetes Day~

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of World Diabetes Day, Optos, a leading medical technology company for the design, development, manufacturing and marketing of retinal imaging devices, is sponsoring the Optos Diabetes Day on Saturday, November 17th, 2007. On this one day over 100 eye care practices throughout North America will hold free diabetes eye screenings that will include the optomap(R) Retinal Exam for patients that have diabetes or are predisposed to diabetes.

"We are excited to participate in the Optos Diabetes Day. The earliest signs of diabetes often occur in the periphery of the retina, located at the back of the eye, without any warning signs," stated Dr. Vincent McMahon of EyeWorks, Keene, NH. "Annual eye exams are vital for people of all ages, especially for diabetics as it helps identify early signs of the disease. The optomap(R) Retinal Exam enables my colleagues and I to view up to 80% of the retina in a simple, non invasive manner, allowing us to more effectively detect signs of diabetes that presents in our patient's eyes."

Following are highlights of some Optos Diabetes Day efforts:

-- In Keene, New Hampshire, Dr. Vincent McMahon and his local colleagues

organized a statewide effort with the New Hampshire Optometric

Association (NHOA) to help raise awareness of the importance of

diabetics having regular eye exams.

-- In Houston, Texas, Drs. Claudio and Grisel Lagunas are holding events

at all four of their practices to allow community members to receive a

free diabetes eye screening. The doctors and their staff will donate

nearly 20 hours of free eye care services on the screening day.

-- In Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, Drs. Joe Hickey and

Mark Burke and their associates collaborate
