What Do I Need to Think About on the Day?
Bring all glasses and/or contact lenses and solutions that you use with you to your screening appointment.
If you are usually sensitive to light, bring some sunglasses with you as your eyes may feel increased sensitivity to light afterwards due to the eye drops dilating your pupils - they will allow more light to pass through as a result.
You may want to bring someone with you to the appointment as your vision may be blurry for a few hours afterwards or until the eye drops wear off.
Please note that the eye drops may affect your vision, so it is imperative that you do not drive for a few hours after your appointment.
If you are due for your next Digital Diabetic Screening, or have just been diagnosed with Diabetes - either type I or II - you can call us to book your appointment on 01902 420348. Please note that we will require a little extra information to make your booking, including contact details for yourself (or for the patient, if you are booking them on their behalf), NHS Number (which you can find on your hospital letter), your GP’s name and surgery address, and details for any prescription medication you may be taking.
