GPs have been urged to get on board with a new national diabetes eye screening program designed to boost the number of patients having regular retinopathy checks.

Diabetes Australia recently launched KeepSight, a website that provides a recall and reminder system about eye checks for patients with diabetes, and records eye test results for future reference.
