Re: Opticians with diabetes knowledge

My dad is diabetic and it is a prerequisite for him in the UK to keep his driving licence that he has his eyesight tested on at least a yearly basis.
I would be surprised if that were massively different in CH.


He is Type 1 and has been for 38 years.


I assume you have regular diabetic control checks to see how you are managing your sugar levels, insulin requirements, diet etc? If so, they should also be connecting you to the folk who check for eyesight, feet problems and cholesterol?


In regard to your first question, all opticians will be qualified to deal with diabetic patients as long as they are aware of the full medical history.
