Abstract

We surveyed 220 patients with diabetic retinopathy attending a tertiary eye hospital in Australia, and found that knowledge of HbA1c, and the proportion achieving target level of <7%, remained low in patients with diabetic retinopathy. These data re-emphasize the gap between clinical guidelines and actual management of patients with diabetes.
