Diabetic Eye Screening
What is Diabetic Eye Screening
As part of your diabetes care Eye screening is an important part of the treatment. Untreated diabetic retinopathy is one of the most common causes of sight loss. Treatment will reduce or preventing damage to your sight if the condition is caught early.
About Our Eye Screening Programme
Jacksons Opticians are a member of the Cheshire Diabetic Eye Screening Programme (CDESP). If you have been diagnosed with Diabetes you’re invited to come for a yearly Digital Retinal Screening by CDESP. This screening will allow us to trace any changes to your retina or damage to the blood vessels within your retina. If these problems aren’t caught quickly then it could lead to a loss of vision.
If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and are above the age of 12, you’re eligible for eye screening with CDESP. If you would like more information please contact the practice and we will be happy to help.
