It is very important for diabetics to have an annual dilated eye exam. Your eye care professional should be communicating that to your PCP, or whoever is monitoring your diabetes. Glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy are just two of those important reasons. Even if you do not have vision benefits, your medical insurance will cover the annual exam and testing for diabetics. If you do not have any insurance, try the Lion's Club. Medicare and Medicaid cover this also.
