Diabetes is a complex disease requiring the involvement of many health professionals, and patients have many different appointments to keep and tests to undergo.

With so much going on, raising awareness of diabetic retinopathy (DR) can be difficult. Early detection is crucial, as DR is symptomless in the early stages; once vision is affected it is usually too late.

Patients can also help to reduce their risk of developing DR by looking after their own health and their diabetes – and as eye care practitioners we have a responsibility to lead by example and to talk to them about how to make healthy changes in their own lifestyle.

Finally, we have several clinical and technical articles to update and inform your diagnosis and management of DR patients. We hope you will enjoy this issue!
