Elgringo’s Retina Screen

Yep, that's mine!

Yep, that’s mine!

Hey Guys!

Just checking to see how everyone is doing!  Hope you are all doing fantastically well!

Moving on, I had my Annual Retina Screening at my local clinic.  I’m sure we know how important having our eyes etc.. checked on a regular basis whilst trying to avert the dreaded Diabetes Retinopathy.  So this quick, painless and non intrusive method is a brilliant way to make sure our eyes stay in great shape.

I took a pic of mine (scared the nurse to death when I asked to snap a pic) although I won’t have the results for up to 2 weeks.  I am hopeful that all is ok this time!

For those who wonder what it all looks like, here is a image courtesy of the UK NHS Diabetic Eye Screening service.  I would have taken self portrait but a) the room was dark b) I had a hand over one eye and c) I was being blinded by the flash going off millimeters away from the centre of my eye!

Stay healthy!


PS: The picture was taken cause I’m a nosey bugger and it also forms part of my photo project over at www.elgringo365.com

    Thanks for the reminder! It’s all too easy to forget or procrastinate.

    Hope the news comes back clear! Stay well, Mike!
