Diabetic Retinopathy in LMICs PSP

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that affects the eyes and can lead to blindness.146 million people around the world have diabetic retinopathy and of these 43 million have an advanced form of the disease. More than 8 in 10 people at risk of vision loss from diabetes live in low–and middle–income countries (LMICs).

The Diabetic Eye Disease in Low- and Middle-Income Countries PSP will work with patients, carers, and healthcare providers to identify uncertainties about the prevention and management of diabetic eye disease in LMICs.
