Diabetes Greatest Contributor to Rise in the Blind

The Sunday Times/United Kingdom
"THE number of blind people in Ireland has grown by 37% in less than a decade, with diabetes contributing to the biggest increase."

"...there are now so many diabetics but there is not enough medical personnel or funding to identify everyone who requires treatment. A national screening programme is needed for early detection of the disease."


Is Ireland a statistical reflection of what is happening in the U.S. and the UK in a broader sense?
