Re: [IP] Eye Problems

Generally speaking, optometrists are fully qualified to recognize diabetic 
retinopathy.   However, they cannot treat diabetic retinopathy.   As with any 
medical professional, some are more adept at recognizing it than others of 
equal qualifications.   That goes for MDs, ODs, PhDs and any other *D you can 
think of.
And yes, every year is the general guideline for a diabetic to have a dilated 
exam.   If there is a retinal problem there are watching, your visits may be 
more frequent.
