Scientific Questions Being Studied

People who have diabetes are more likely to develop several eye diseases or conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and open-angle glaucoma. For people who have diabetes, it is important to get regular comprehensive dilated eye exam to identify these conditions and have early treatment. This study is to survey cohorts of AoU participants who have diabetes and who do not, and compare the incidence rates of these eye conditions, and to examine their EHR data for regular eye exams as a means of prevention.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

1) Building datasets: identify participants who have type 2 diabetes and randomly select equal number of participants without type 2 diabetes
2) Search the EHR records of the participants to identify eye diseases and conditions
3) Run statistical analysis to find the difference on incidence rate between the two populations

Anticipated Findings

Type 2 diabetic participants will have a higher incidence rate of eye diseases or conditions compared to non-diabetic participants. Using the EHR data, if the type 2 participants do not have more frequent eye exams compared to non-diabetic participants, the findings in the study will provide evidence to recommend for regular eye exams for diabetic patients.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
