Remote screening can help detect diabetic eye disease

In the article, "Utility of Hard Exudates for the Screening of Macular Edema," using digital photographs of the eye taken at the doctor's office or clinic, eye specialists can reliably detect "hard exudates" -- a key early sign of diabetes-related macular edema, reports the new research by Jorge A. Cuadros, OD, PhD, of UC Berkeley School of Optometry and colleagues. "This study offers impressive support for the implementation of remote screening images for patients with diabetes, who are not being seen by eye specialists like optometrists and ophthalmologists," comments Anthony Adams, OD, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of Optometry and Vision Science.
