A new study found screening diabetes patients with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) could uncover early microvascular changes that may help clinicians intervene sooner to avoid the development of diabetic retinopathy (DR). 1 Researchers at the Vanderbilt Eye Institute studied 37 eyes of 20 patients with diabetes, none of whom showed signs of DR upon clinical and dilated exam by a retina specialist.
