Abstract

Of 1112 children with type 1 diabetes, dilated eye exams were performed in 717 (64%). Children were less likely to be screened for diabetic retinopathy (DR) if they were black (OR=1.6; p=0.005) or had poorer diabetes control (p=0.002). Those at greatest risk for DR were least likely to be screened.
