Early detection saving sight of diabetics


People living with diabetes in remote areas of the Goldfields region can now access advanced retinal screening closer to home thanks to a new partnership between the WA Country Health Service and the Lions Eye Institute.

Health Minister Kim Hames said the initiative provided patients with early screening for diabetes-induced vision impairment and used telehealth or communication technology to deliver screening results to regional patients.
