For patients

All patients with diabetes should receive retinal imaging follow-up according to current medical guidelines throughout their lives.

In the absence of significant retinal changes, the monitoring interval will be every 2 years.

For minor changes, the interval will be shortened to annually.

In the case of significant changes, patients will be referred out of the imaging system for further evaluation by a specialist in eye diseases.

How does this work?

You will be referred to us for regular follow-up by your general practitioner or from your internal medicine department.

You will receive a text message with info about your appointment, location, date, and time approximately one month before your scheduled appointment. You will also receive a reminder via text message the day before your appointment. We will schedule your retinal imaging appointment for both eyes (1 image per eye) at the location nearest to you geographically. You only need to show up at the designated location. There, you will meet trained personnel who will capture images of both your eyes. Please remember to bring identification (bank card, driver's license, etc.) with you.
