If you or a loved one suffers from diabetic retinopathy, we invite you to join our new online diabetic retinopathy support group for patients, and their families, caregivers, and doctors, to exchange information and share experiences concerning the latest treatments and therapies for this disease.

Group members can:

  • initiate discussions;
  • publish comments to a “wall;”
  • email other members;
  • alert other members to upcoming events; and
  • upload photos and videos.

The group is hosted by EyeDocNews Community, a new social network designed to facilitate dialogue between individuals suffering from various eye diseases concerning new treatments for their conditions.

Signing up is easy and free – just click here to join EyeDocNews Community, and then join the diabetic retinopathy support group.

And if you have any feedback after joining, I’d be delighted to hear it.

    Hello……….is anybody out there? I am a 57 y/o male who has been t1D for 47 years. I was 1st diagnosed with proliferative diabetic retinopathy back in 1986. Thanks to laser treatment and subsequent surgeries, the progression has been slow and I’m doing pretty well. However, I’ve had little luck in finding people with similar situations. I know you’re out there! It would be nice to be able to compare notes with other diabetics and/or exchange ideas and words of encouragement with others who may also be suffering from other long-term effects of type 1.
