Diabetics need a comprehensive eye exam annually.

Recommendations by the ADA and the AAO are that every diabetic receive a dilated exam every year. This allows for proper examination of the retina. The doctor will look for swelling near the macula, which is the functional center of the retina. The goal is to prevent swelling in this area and preserve your vision.
