Diabetic Retinopathy Eye Screening

Diabetic Retinopathy is caused when diabetes affects the small blood vessels in the retina, the part of the eye that acts rather like a film in a camera. It is the most common cause of sight loss in people of working age and it is estimated that every year in England 4,200 people are at risk of blindness caused by diabetic retinopathy.
