When to seek medical care for diabetic eye disease
Even if the person is not experiencing any symptoms due to diabetes, the person should have an annual eye examination by an ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in eye disease and eye surgery). If the ophthalmologist notices any significant signs of diabetic eye disease or if the person requires treatment, exams may need to be scheduled more frequently than annually.
If the person notes any significant changes in vision other than a mild temporary blurring, they should contact an ophthalmologist immediately.
