“Diabetic Retinopathy – A Potential Consequence of Uncontrolled Diabetes”
The Wisconsin Lions Foundation partnered with an Ophthalmologist, Brian T. Perkovich, MD, and WFRV-TV from Green Bay to produce this wonderful DVD. This DVD was initiated and coordinated by Lion Len Schmeichel, MD27-B2. The Wisconsin Lions Foundation partnered with the Wisconsin Diabetes Prevention and Control Program to produce 1,000 copies of the DVD. The video below is a patient/doctor discussion of three questions - "What is diabetic retinopathy?"; "Are there any symptoms that precede retinopathy?"; and "What can I do to take care of diabetic retinopathy?"

There are two other sections available on the DVD that are intending for viewing by people looking for a more in-depth or technical presentation about diabetic retinopathy. The sections feature a lecture from the Ophthalmologist. The twenty-one minute section is a condensed version of the thirty-five minute technical program.
