2014 Diabetic eye disease – community information forum

A capacity crowd attended CERA’s annual Diabetic Eye Disease Information Forum on Thursday 17 July which coincided with National Diabetes Week.

People with diabetes are 25 times more likely than the general population to become blind. Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in people of working age.

The forum was chaired by Dr Peter van Wijngaarden, CERA’s Principal Investigator for Diabetic Retinopathy & Neuroglial Interactions.
