Eye on Diabetes

Oregon’s “Eyes on Diabetes” campaign for the month of November, 2023.

OOPA members volunteered to offer free eye exams to select diabetes patients in November. 

Oregon Foundation for Vision Awareness (OFVA), in partnership with Oregon Optometric Physicians Association (OOPA), launched a program offering no-cost diabetic eye exams and glasses to patients who otherwise could not afford care.

Entitled “Eyes on Diabetes”, the program was available at participating locations throughout the state in alignment with American Diabetes Month activities. 

Those who do not have insurance coverage or are underinsured and have been diagnosed with diabetes or suspect that they may have symptoms related to the disease, may learn more about a participating optometrist in their region by visiting OFVA
