Appointment

Eye screening is a key part of diabetes care to check for diabetic retinopathy a condition that can lead to sight loss if it's not detected early and treated. All diabetic patients in the UK aged 12 and over should have an annual screening appointment. For more information about diabetic eye screening please visit NHS choices.

We have created a video that explains your eye screening appointment. It is split up into 6 easy sections:

Taking a history - your details will be checked to make sure the information on the system is up to date and correct.

Testing Visual Acuity - we record how good the level of your sight is. If you wear glasses for your distance vision, you will need to bring these to your appointment.

Dilation Drops – the eye drops make your pupils larger to ensure the images we capture are clear. The eye drops can cause blurriness and sensitivity to light for up to 6 hours – do not drive in this time.

Photographing The Eye – we use our camera to photograph different areas of the back of your eye.

Grading – the images taken of your eyes will be assessed after your appointment.

Results – you will usually receive your results 4 – 6 weeks after the appointment.
