Your Appointment

Important information for your diabetic eye screening appointment

  • Bring any prescription glasses you have with you (if you wear contact lenses, bring a storage container, as you will be required to remove them before screening). 
  • You are strongly advised not to drive a motor vehicle for up to 6 hours after your eyes have been photographed. This is because the dilating eye drops that have to be administered will blur your vision and driving could be dangerous. 
  • Your eyes will be sensitive to light and you may wish to bring sunglasses especially on sunny days. 
  • This test does not replace your regular optician visit. 

If you would like to discuss the appointment or have any mobility or translator considerations please let us know. We will send you a text reminder if we hold a mobile number for you.
