New Research Indicates safe to Screen for Diabetic Retinopathy Bi-Annually

Research carried out at the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry
(PCMD), University of Exeter, has concluded that it would be a safe and
cost-effective strategy to screen people with type 2 diabetes who have
not yet developed diabetic retinopathy, for the disease once every two
years instead of annually.

The research is supported by funding from the National Institute for
Health Research Peninsula Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health
Research and Care (NIHR PenCLAHRC).
