Diabetic eye screening

Everyone with diabetes aged 12 or over should be invited to have their eyes screened once a year. If you have diabetes, your eyes are at risk from diabetic retinopathy, a condition that can lead to sight loss if it's not treated. Screening, which involvesa half-hour check to examine the back of the eyes,is a way of detecting the condition early so it can be treated more effectively. .
