Diabetic Screening Scheme & Local Protocol

Screening for Diabetic Retinopathy


Screening for signs of diabetic eye disease is normally carried out by optometrists in this area.The method of screening is being improved by the use of digital cameras to photograph the back of the eye.


The camera scheme is operating across several areas of Manchester. 


You can choose to have your eye screening at any of the listed practices, the latest list is found in the document attached below.


If your practice is not listed, then you should continue to see your own optometrist for your sight test, but you should visit one of the listed optometrists for screening, telling them that screening is all you require.



Please see the attached patient information leaflet for diabetic screening below.
