World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day, an initiative of the International Diabetes Federation, is today! The day aims to encourage health improvement via promoting awareness and is part of the Federations broader mission of tackling diabetes.

Diabetes can cause debilitating vision loss and regular eye reviews following diagnosis are imperative to ensure that any vision loss is minimised.  The Ophthalmologists at MetWest Eye Centre are trained in diagnosis and management of the eye conditions associated with diabetes.
