Acting Head of the Military Medical Academy and Head of the Clinic for Eye Diseases Colonel Prof. Dr. Miroslav Vukosavljevic pointed out the importance of the fundus examination as one of the first diagnostic method for determining the existence of diabetes. He reminded that on the preventive ophthalmologic examination, which is advised three times a year independently of the general health of citizens, it is possible to detect the onset of diabetes, and that this type of screening is considered standard in developed European countries.

It, along with numerous risk factors and different stages of development, can lead to severe visual impairment if changes in the retina are not noticed in time.
