Fundoscopy Camera Reduces Laser Surgery

The Ophthalmology department in Al-Bahr center Dr. Khaled Al-Sabti revealed Saturday that the Fundoscopy special cameras helped to reduce laser-surgery for diabetics by 7-15 percent within the last five years.

Al-Sabti told KUNA that the device had a 93 percent accuracy in discovering the complications of diabetes, adding that he published a special study on the efficient usage of the camera recently.

Annually, around 12 percent diabetics around the world suffer from blindness due to diabetes complications.

In Kuwait, more than 15 percent of adults are diagnosed with diabetes, while 22 in 100,000 children under the age of 14 are diagnosed with the disease.

Number of diabetic people worldwide is expected to reach more than 300 million by 2025, while potential cases are expected to reach 427 million the same year.
