DDI Organizes a Diabetic Retinopathy Workshop 2024

Published on

Diabetic retinopathy is a serious complication of diabetes, the neglect of which may lead to vision loss. DDI, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, organized an advanced diabetic retinopathy workshop for two different groups of general healthcare practitioners. Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication in people with diabetes, as it occurs due to high levels of blood sugar that nourishes the cells in the back of the eye, known as the retina, which if left untreated can lead to vision loss.

This ongoing workshop plays a vital role in contributing to the development of ophthalmology services/care and improving the level of therapeutic services provided to patients. This workshop also addresses several topics, including risk factors for developing diabetic retinopathy, its signs, how to diagnose it, as well as the stages of development of retinopathy, reading retinal examinations, and the latest recommendations followed regarding this disease.
