Primary Care at UPMC

About Us

When you choose a UPMC primary care physician (PCP), you can establish a lasting relationship that can benefit you through a lifetime. Our doctors provide wellness services and treatment for medical conditions that range from common to complex.

Introducing the Diabetic Retinal Exam

A specially designed, state-of-the-art camera has been installed in select primary care offices* that allows primary care physicians (PCP) to perform a diabetic retinal exam (DRE) that can help identify potential eye and vision problems in patients who are living with diabetes.

If you have diabetes, your blood sugar level may cause changes in the blood vessels of your retina, leading them to bleed or leak fluid and could distort vision. These changes also may lead to diabetic retinopathy (DR), a leading cause of blindness in diabetic patients. However, early detection and appropriate follow-up with an ophthalmologist can help protect against vision loss.

Your PCP can refer you for a DRE and then perform the exam—right in the office. Having this specialized camera and trained staff in your PCP office will save time and the inconvenience of scheduling a separate appointment.

This painless exam takes only a few minutes and includes taking pictures of the back of your eyes. Your PCP and staff will review the images and send them to a UPMC specialist for further analysis. Your PCP may follow-up with you and if needed, refer you to an ophthalmologist.

It’s a good idea to discuss your insurance coverage with office staff prior to your DRE.
