Abstract

Among 100 Indonesian adults with type 2 diabetes having vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy, less than 25% of individuals had appropriate treatment within 12 months from their initial screening due to lack of information about the treatment cost (88%), no permission from family member (77.3%) and having no eye complaint (77%).
