Diabetes and Sight Loss

Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the leading causes of new adult blindness in America. People with diabetes are at risk of losing their sight due to Diabetic Retinopathy. All people with diabetes, both Type 1 and Type 2 are at risk. That's why everyone with diabetes should get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year.

Lions Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Program

With these statistics in mind, the Florida Lions Diabetic Retinopathy Foundation has developed a new Diabetic Retinopathy Screening program and needs your help. We have expanded our Blood Glucose Screening Program to include Diabetic Retinopathy Screening through our newly formed Florida Lions Diabetic Retinopathy Foundation. This new program is designed to screen people throughout Florida and the Bahamas who are in high-risk categories for Diabetic Retinopathy. These screenings are free and made possible through your Club donations, individual donations, and a grant from the Lions Clubs International Foundation.

Lions wishing to join us in our fight against the effects of vision loss should contact the Florida Lions Diabetic Retinopathy Foundation. You can contact Lion Norma Callahan at (386) 479-9896 or email her at lionsretinascreening@yahoo.com. Click here to be redirected to our Florida Lions Diabetes Retinopathy Foundation website.
