Diabetic Eye Screening

We aim to reduce the risk of sight loss among people with diabetes by screening them regularly to detect any potential problems at an early stage so they can be referred for treatment if needed.

Clinics for our services are held all over the county.

In the video below, one of our patients and our staff will explain to you why eye screening is so important and what happens at each appointment.
