Marshall Health uses the artificial intelligence (AI) system LumineticsCore™ to test patients with diabetes for diabetic retinopathy, a leading cause of blindness. Diabetic retinopathy can occur when high blood sugar levels cause damage to blood vessels in the retina, which is in the back of the eye.

Marshall Health partners with diabetic patients and their primary care providers to identify signs of eye disease and provide more opportunities for early intervention before vision loss occurs.

The LumineticsCore exam is typically completed in minutes. The pictures are then evaluated by the AI’s diagnostic software, which searches for signs of diabetic retinopathy. An immediate diagnostic report is produced at the point-of-care, allowing providers to discuss the results with the patient while they are in the office.

This exam does not replace a comprehensive eye exam by an eye care professional; however, it does provide a convenient option for patients with diabetes to proactively prevent vision loss during your regularly-scheduled visit with your primary care provider.

Medicare covers this exam annually for diabetic patients, subject to plan co-pays and deductibles.

Eye experts recommend people with diabetes have their eyes tested each year.
