Dilated Eye Exams+
If you’re living with diabetes, it’s important for you to see an ophthalmologist or optometrist for a yearly dilated eye exam. A dilated eye exam can help your doctor find and treat serious eye diseases that are common among people with diabetes. Some of these diseases can cause loss of vision or blindness, including retinopathy, cataracts and glaucoma.

Prediabetes Screening Test+
Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal, but not yet diabetes. Diabetes is a serious disease that can cause heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, or loss of feet or legs. Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented in people with prediabetes through effective lifestyle programs.
Take the first step. Find out your risk for prediabetes with the Prediabetes Screening Test.
