Diabetic eye exams are dilated exams with specialized imaging to assess for diabetic changes. If there is no evidence of diabetic retinopathy you should have a comprehensive, dilated exam once a year. If there are signs of diabetic eye disease, the frequency of eye exams depends on the severity of the findings and can range from every month to every couple of months.
