The Teleophthalmology for Diabetic Eye Screening program, led by assistant professor and glaucoma specialist Yao Liu, MD, is now live at UW Health East and Yahara Clinics. The program launched August 28, 2018.

UW Health Primary care providers and their staff at these two clinics can directly order undilated retinal photos for diabetic eye screening. Photos are performed on a walk-in basis by trained radiology technicians using a touchscreen fundus camera in each clinic’s radiology area. DOVS providers will assist with scheduling follow-up appointments for patients who have abnormal findings.
