Vision should be examined regularly

Diabetic eye issues like retinopathy might not show symptoms in early stages, but can lead to vision impairment, even blindness.1

Annual exams may help detect vision issues before symptoms appear. An annual exam is 100% covered with many Humana plans and supplemental vision benefits through EyeMed, when an in-network provider is used.
