Untreated eye disease can all too often lead to blindness. Not only is blindness devastating to the patient, but it is a terrible burden and cost to their families, and a great cost to society.

Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Degeneration are leading causes of blindness throughout the world. The earlier they are diagnosed, the less invasive and less costly are the treatments.

Regular eye exams for everyone, especially as they age, and for anyone with diabetes, are the keys to early detection and treatment. The use of fundus or retinal cameras has proved invaluable in the early diagnosis of eye disease.

Cost of a lifetime of support and unpaid taxes for one blind person: $916,000 (Figured using SSI & SSDI average payments and unpaid tax estimates).
