Physical activity (PA) is inversely associated with diabetic retinopathy (DR) prevalence among adults in the United States.1,2 Sedentary behavior (SB), independent of PA, is also detrimentally associated with risk factors (eg, hemoglobin A1c [HbA1c] level)3 linked with DR incidence.4 To my knowledge, no study has evaluated the association of SB with DR, which was this study’s purpose.
