Diabetic Eye Exam - Check Yearly, See Clearly!

Member news | Friday, July 1, 2016

We know how hard it is to live with a chronic illness like diabetes. Managing your illness requires taking certain health tests each year. One very important test is the diabetic eye exam.

Why is this test important?

Having diabetes means your body can't control the level of sugar in your blood. If your blood sugar is too high, it can cause problems with your vision, like blurriness or even blindness.

You could have an early stage of diabetic eye disease and not even know it.

What will we do for you if you get your diabetic eye exam?

We will send you a $15 gift card* from Target if you:

  • Complete a diabetic eye exam this year (between 1/1/2016 – 12/31/2016), or
  • Send us the results of your completed diabetic eye exam in 2015, if no sign of diabetic eye disease was found at that time.

What do you need to do?

  • If you are not sure if you've had a diabetic eye exam this year, call your doctor and ask. They will let you know the last time you had one, and can set up a visit if needed.
  • If you know you have not had a diabetic eye exam this year, call your doctor and schedule your exam before December 31, 2016.

How do you get your gift card?

To receive your card, please, mail or fax a completed eye exam form to our Quality Improvement Department. Send your results before January 31, 2017.
