Abstract

Optometrists play the pivotal role in educating diabetic patients to minimize micro- and macro-vascular complications. The goals of this lecture are to address updates on modifiable risks for diabetic retinopathy (DR) and examine the link between DR and other end-organ-damages: ranging from nephropathy to cognitive impairment to even mortality risk.

In addition, the lecture will discuss a novel approach of “prescribing” exercise as a therapy to reduce DR risks while minimizing dangers from potential pitfalls.
