What is an annual diabetic eye exam?
Diabetic eye exams are similar to regular eye exams in many ways. However, during a diabetic eye exam, your eye doctor will focus on your retina and the blood vessels in your eye.
During your diabetic eye exam, you may receive eye drops that cause you to experience blurred vision or you may find light to be too bright for a few hours. If you’re worried about this, it’s a good idea to have someone join you at the appointment to drive you home. You can also take public transportation. You are not required to have someone with you, this is just a friendly tip.
