What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition where the amount of glucose in your blood is too high because the body cannot use it properly. This is because your pancreas does not produce enough insulin to help the glucose enter your cells.

Why is Diabetes screening important?

Diabetic screening is important as it helps to prevent sight loss. Screening can detect any damage early before you notice any changes to your vision.

How we screen Diabetics

We take photographs of the back of the eye and send them to the hospital for analysis. Usually drops will be put into your eyes to make your pupils larger to allow a clearer image.
