An evaluation of a surveillance clinic with two fields digital photography for those who present with early signs of referable diabetic maculopathy over a 4 year follow up period

The NHS Diabetic Eye Screening Programme states that from April 2013 all programmes should provide a virtual photographic clinic in order to reduce the number of unnecessary referrals into the Hospital Eye Service.

The aim of the audit is to evaluate the surveillance clinic pathway as a means to manage patients with signs of early referable diabetic maculopathy and to investigate whether patients develop M1 in the fellow eye.
