Retinal screening


Diabetic eye (retinal) screening is a test to check for eye problems caused by diabetes, called diabetic retinopathy. This can lead to sight loss if it's not found early.  The screening test, which takes pictures of the back of your eyes to check for any changes, aims to detect any problems before they affect your sight.

If you have diabetes and you're aged 12 or over, you'll get a letter asking you to have your eyes checked at least once a year.

The Devon Diabetic Eye Screening Programme is run by Health Intelligence, who are responsible for inviting people to a screening, following a referral from your GP.

The programme will carry out all aspects of screening, including grading and referring to the hospital eye services as required.
