I was wondering if any of you guys know what the difference is between having your eyes dilated and only having a picture taken of them. I had a full eye exam back in 2010; where they only took a picture of the veins and arteries in my eye, and they said all looks good. They said I don’t have diabetes. My doc has requested that I get another eye exam to have my eyes dilated and fully checked out. I’m kind of reluctant to do this though, because the eye doc is so far away. My A1C at diagnosis was 7.3 in 2014. I have recently gotten it down to 5.5. I will eventually get the exam though. The other post about yearly eye exams got me thinking about this again.
