Community Eye Screening in the Age of COVID-19 (Alan Wagner, MD, Kapil Kapoor, MD, Matthew Vallevand, MPH, Esmel Meeks)

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye complication of diabetes affecting 7.7 million Americans, and this number is projected to increase to more than 14.6 million people by 2030. Many people with diabetes do not receive their recommended annual eye exams, so diabetic retinopathy continues to be the leading cause of adult blindness in the U.S.

Wagner Macula & Retina Center is a multi-provider practice located in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia & North Carolina, specializing in diabetic retinopathy and other complex eye diseases. The center has been pioneering community-based eye screening for many years and its state-of-the-art facilities in 9 locations offer the latest technology and treatments to save patients’ eyesight.

In this webinar, learn about how Wagner Macula & Retina Center developed innovative strategies to target at-risk patients, collaborate with community partners, and leverage innovative artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to build their effective and efficient community eye screening program.
