Diabetes is one disease with multiple ramifications. While diabetics need to watch their diet and blood sugar levels, they also need to exercise regularly to burn of excess fat and raise their body’s metabolism. Yet, on the other hand, they also need to get their eyes tested at regular intervals to ward of any eye-complications caused by diabetes. Diabetics also need to remain well informed about any new happenings in the world of diabetes. In such a case, diabetic eye newsletters can certainly help them out.
The first action that needs to be taken on an urgent basis is to educate diabetics, pre-diabetics and even non-diabetics on the importance of getting their eyes checked by ophthalmologists at regular intervals. An advertising campaign needs to be initiated over radio, TV and various print media to stress the importance of such tests. However, this is beyond the financial capabilities of individual hospitals or ophthalmologists. In such cases, governments should step in along with the help of large businesses and media companies to initiate this eye-saving program.
Ophthalmologists can still spread vital knowledge to people in the form of diabetic eye marketing kits. These kits can contain brochures explaining the various eye diseases that can crop up due to diabetes. They can also contain information regarding the various medical procedures that can be utilized to repair any damage done by such diseases. Details including causes, symptoms and treatment of different eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, cataracts, glaucoma, etc can be explained in detail in these brochures along with the importance of regular eye checkups in preventing these complications. These marketing kits can also include vital newsletters that showcase the latest happenings in the world of diabetes, be it breakthroughs in treatments or details of the treatment of such diseases in different parts of the country or the world.
The next important action is to ensure that these marketing kits and newsletters reach the right hands and eyes. They can be arranged in custom designed displays that can be kept on different countertops in any eye-hospital, clinic or even different schools and colleges. If placed in eye-catching places, they are sure to be picked up by a lot of people and read by them. People can also be asked to sign up for regular newsletters and these can then be sent direct to them by mail or can even be emailed to them at their email address. This advertising campaign can easily be initiated by individual ophthalmologists in and around their neighborhoods and they will surely be able to draw in a lot of new patients that have realized the importance of getting their eyes tested after reading such newsletters. Another method of attracting more people is to include gift certificates in the marketing kits, which can be redeemed against the services offered by ophthalmologists or even against select diabetic eye supplies.
Hence, diabetic eye newsletters can certainly spread the light by providing the latest information or breakthroughs that might have erupted in the world of diabetes especially in the field of diabetic eye care. These newsletters can provide hope to diabetic sufferers and help them avoid any complications during their diabetic tenure.
