Description
The global burden of morbidity and mortality from diabetes has grown explosively in recent years, carrying with it a tsunami of eye disease delayed by one or two decades. Models to manage this disease are desperately needed in areas of limited resources. Simultaneously, aging of the global population has led to dramatic increases in the prevalence of glaucoma. These diseases share many of the same challenges: need for life-long care, lack of symptoms early in the disease course, and treatments which are complex and expensive to administer, and are not associated with vision improvement that might spur acceptance of care. This session will focus on a number of proposed local solutions to these growing global problems.
