NEHEP Diabetes and Healthy Eyes Toolkit
The National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP) Diabetes and Healthy Eyes Toolkit provides community health workers with tools to inform people with diabetes about diabetic eye disease and maintaining healthy vision. The toolkit has a flipchart that is easy to use in community settings and can be incorporated into existing diabetes classes or information sessions. It provides all the materials and tools necessary to inform people how diabetes affects the eyes, the importance of comprehensive dilated eye exams, and how people can protect their sight from diabetic eye disease. It is available in English and Spanish.
