Blindness from diabetes halves in Wales, new research shows

Research by Swansea University published in the British Medical Journal has found that, despite an increase in the number of people in Wales with diabetes, the proportion of diabetics who go blind or suffer sight loss has almost halved since Wales' diabetic retinopathy screening programme started in 2007.

Diabetic Eye Screening Wales invites patients registered with diabetes who are aged 12 and older for annual eye screening. For more information, visit the Welsh Government website. There is also a report on the BBC website, which includes a link to the research which you can read here.
