Sarkarai Kangal Thittam
Lotus is conducting mass diabetic blindness awareness and screening drive to educate and screen diabetics for diabetic eye disease.
The awareness about diabetic eye disease and visual loss is very poor among diabetics. Early diagnosis and timely treatment of diabetic eye disease will save eye sight for the rest of the life. The prevalence of diabetic retinopathy in India varies between 22.6% and 34.1% and the diabetic blindness accounts for 3% of the total blindness in the country. Diabetic retinopathy can be easily detected by simple eye examination in the beginning even before the vision is affected and cost effective laser treatment will prevent further visual loss.
At Lotus, diabetic patients are clinically examined by retinal specialists in the diabetic eye unit with slit lamp bio microscopy and indirect ophthalmoscope. Patients having evidence of diabetic retinopathy are subjected to a simple test like Fundus Fluorescein Angiogram and OCT which together takes less than 30 minutes. Based on these reports patients undergo further treatment.
The Medical team from Lotus is visiting to all the Diabetologists Clinic and offering free Diabetic eye check up for the diabetics
