EyePACS: helping to
prevent diabetic blindness
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness among working age adults. Early detection
through retinal exams and prompt treatment can reduce vision loss by as much as 90%.
Despite this potential for saving sight, only half of patients with diabetes get recommended annual retinal exams.
EyePACS is a simple to use, cost-effective, web-based program that effectively detects
diabetic retinopathy. EyePACS makes it easy for Diabetes Care Providers to ensure their
patients get the retinal exams they need for timely detection of sight-threatening eye disease.
