This screening is essential for diabetic patients who don't have easy access to an ophthalmologist for a complete vision exam. The statistics on diabetic retinopathy are staggering. The disease threatens 40 percent of diabetic patients with blindness. Further, patients often don't know anything is wrong until it's too late to stop the disease. With this simple screening, however, over 90 percent of patients who have the beginnings of the disease can be treated and their vision saved. The screening takes about 10 minutes and is usually done with eyes dilated. Patients who can't have their eyes dilated can still have the exam. The screening is covered by Medi-Cal, Medicare, and most other individual insurance plans. Family Medical Practitioner Christina Potter has trained with U.C. Berkeley optometrist Dr. Harry Green on the use of the diabetic retinopathy camera. "By providing this service in the primary care setting, we give patients easier access, no Jimmy Encinas, a diabetic patient at EPHC, found that he has early stage diabetic retinopathy at a recent screening held at Portola Medical Clinic. Thanks to the screening, Encinas caught his diabetic retinopathy early and will be able to prevent any further damage to his eyesight.
