Eye screening reduces risk of eye problems in diabetics

Owain Clarke, BBC Wales health correspondent, wrote that research shows that the proportion of diabetics who go blind or suffer sight loss has almost halved since a new national retinopathy screening programme started in 2007. Diabetics aged over 12 are offered annual screening and health experts said the study shows a “clear benefit”. New certifications for severe sight impairment have fallen from 31.3 to 15.8 per 100,000 people. Swansea University research over eight years was published in the British Medical Journal.
