Private Diabetic Screening Service


What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of the eye that can affect anyone who has diabetes, regardless of the type or treatment, causing damage to the blood vessels supplying the retina – the “seeing” part of the eye.

Diabetic retinopathy generally has no obvious symptoms until it is a
dvanced, so early detection is essential.

Regular eye screening is essential to protect your eyesight as early detection is the key to successful treatment. Good glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol control can also reduce your risk of developing sight threatening complications.

 

 


“It is important to attend regular eye screening to detect potential sight threatening retinopathy as timely treatment is highly effective in preventing progression. The benefit of attending outpatient clinic is to get advice, visual prognosis and treatment to prevent deterioration in vision.”

-          Mr Roger McPherson, Clinical Director
