Eye screening every 2 years is safe for diabetes patients
Undergoing eye screening once every two years instead of annual checkups is safe and cost-effective for patients with diabetes, a study in Diabetes Care indicated.

However, the American Diabetes Association recommends that people with diabetes get their eyes checked at least annually.
