Diabetes eye screening 

Having your eyes tested is the only way to find out if diabetes is damaging your sight.

People with diabetes should have their eyes tested once a year and this special test is often called the NHS Diabetic Eye Screening Test. People who are diabetic need eye screening as well as their usual eye tests with an optometrist.
