Dr. Tafoya will perform Diabetic Retinopathy Screenings at Waianae Coast Comprehensive  Health (WCCH) monthly beginning in March of 2010.  Diabetes is a serious chronic disease that affects many people in Leeward and Central Oahu.  Diabetes can cause permanent blindness.  Early intervention can slow the progression if its affects on the eye and possibly prevent permanent blindness.  Because it is vital that diabetics have their eyes checked on a regular basis, Dr. Tafoya feels the importance of coming to WCCH to screen for diabetic eye disease and get these patients the care that they require to improve quality of life.
