    screening implies early detection of a disease, which may be applied to a general population or certain highrisk gropus.

    diabetic retinopathy is a very important cause of blindness.
    prevalence increases with years n severity of disease.
    this screening is carried out in a known diabetic patient and involves retinal evaluation by specialised machines by an ophthalmologist, which maybe done annually.
