Detecting DME in its early stages is important in the fight against vision loss and possible blindness. Knowing the risk factors associated with DME can help you identify which patients should be referred to their optometrist, general ophthalmologist, or retina specialist.
General ophthalmologists and retina specialists are important resources to help a patient manage DME. They are trained to diagnose and treat retinal conditions like DME.
