Description:

Diabetes is a prototypical chronic disease that imposes a large public health
burden. One of its many complications is diabetic retinopathy (DR). Early
detection of DR is an important problem because many Americans with diabetes
do not get regular eye exams due mainly to distance, geography, and economic
status. Studies conducted in the 1980s and 1990s demonstrated that vision
loss from DR could be prevented if treatment with laser photocoagulation
therapy was initiated based upon regular screening and subsequent diagnosis
of retinal disease. In this Request for Applications (RFA) the NEI seeks to
develop, apply, and evaluate noninvasive technology that is practical,
affordable, and accessible so that patients with diabetes can benefit from
remote site disease screening.
