How do we check for diabetic retinopathy?

Your Envision Optical optometrist will carefully examine the retina through dilated pupils to check for any blood vessel changes and areas of bleeding or fluid accumulation. This should be done at least annually.

We recommend routine digital retinal photography at every visit to enable accurate monitoring for any changes. OCT retinal and macular scans will be performed if any swelling of the retina or macula is suspected.
