Had my eye test yesterday (normal one, not diabetic) at specsavers. They take a photograph of your retina now (for everyone, not just diabetics). Anyway, they have detected some changes in my retina.

I had my last diabetic eye test last December, eyedrops and all. They did not use eye drops this time,would that make a difference on the photo?

Optician going to write to my gp. Apart from getting my blood sugars down to stop any further damage is there anything else I can do?

Not a lot really I don't think. If you're due in December I think the earliest you can be retested is November. but they would do exactly the same, refer you to your GP. Don't panic smile
