WHAT IS IT?
Diabetic Retinopathy screening is a complication of diabetes that affects the eyes. It occurs when high levels of blood sugar damage the blood vessels in the retina, which is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. Over time, this damage can lead to vision loss or blindness if left untreated.
It is important to screen for Diabetic Retinopathy because early detection and treatment can help prevent or slow down the progression of the disease. Regular eye exams, including a. comprehensive dilated eye exam, can detect signs of diabetic retinopathy before vision problems occur. With early intervention, steps can be taken to manage the condition and protect the eyesight of individuals with diabetes.
Screening for Diabetic Retinopathy is particularly important for individuals with diabetes because the disease often progresses without noticeable symptoms in its early stages. By the time vision problems become apparent, the damage may already be severe. Therefore, routine screenings are essential to identify and address any signs of diabetic retinopathy as early as possible.
Most Insurances cover Retinopathy screening using a few different, applicable CPT codes.
