Diabetic Eye Care
Our diabetic specialty was founded in 2016. Diabetes in Jamaica is a lifestyle epidemic, with 13% of the population being diagnosed with the disease. An unknown number may be living with it without having a diagnosis. It is also the 2nd leading cause of death in Jamaicans over 70.
Taking our cue from international best practices, where diabetes is best managed through a multidisciplinary approach, we have put together a team of professionals including our own principal optometrist Dr. Riley-Ricketts, an ophthalmologist, a medical doctor/lifestyle consultant and a nutritionist. The aim is to work along with patients' General Practitioners to provide the best available management for diabetes.
