Calculate Your Risk for Diabetic Retinopathy

Vision loss due to diabetes can be prevented with early detection, timely treatment, and preventive lifestyle changes. With this free RetinaRisk™ calculator, you can better understand the risk factors, calculate your risk, and learn simple steps you can take to prevent vision loss.

It's easy to take your eyesight for granted.

Diabetes is the leading cause of vision loss in people 18–64 years old. And there are no obvious signs or symptoms. But the great news is an annual routine eye exam could prevent 95% of vision loss caused by diabetes.

Focus on Diabetes™ is a multi-year initiative that brings together the American Diabetes Association and Visionary Partners from leading organizations in vision care to increase awareness about diabetes and eye health.
