Thanks to Mike for this Blog – I wanted to share as I am due for my Annual Eye Check Up and Retina Screening in a few weeks.

Yep, that’s mine!

Hey Guys!

Just checking to see how everyone is doing!  Hope you are all doing fantastically well!

Moving on, I had my Annual Retina Screening at my local clinic.  I’m sure we know how important having our eyes etc.. checked on a regular basis whilst trying to avert the dreaded Diabetes Retinopathy.  So this quick, painless and non intrusive method is a brilliant way to make sure our eyes stay in great shape.

I took a pic of mine (scared the nurse to death when I asked to snap a pic) although I won’t have the results for up to 2 weeks.  I am hopeful that all is ok this time!

For those who wonder what it all looks like, here is a image courtesy of the UK NHS Diabetic Eye Screening service.  I would have taken self portrait but a) the room was dark b) I had a hand over one eye and c) I was being blinded by the flash going off millimeters away from the centre of my eye! icon smile Elgringos Retina Screen

Stay healthy!
