Coronavirus (COVID-19) and diabetes

Diabetes UK has issued advice about the corona virus situation for people with this condition, which you can read here.

Regarding eye care, Diabetes UK advises:

Within Wales the Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Service has been suspended temporarily, due to the current situation, but will be resumed as soon as it is safe to do so. However, if any patient qualifying for the service notices a change in vision, comfort or appearance of the eye, their first port of call should be their optometrist.
