Welcome To Medical Imaging

This website is designed to inform and promote awareness about diabetic retinopathy and the process of retinal eye screening provided for diabetic patients.

Diabetes now affects approximately 6% of the UK’s population, and this number is set to increase over the next decade.

Screening works! For the first time in over 50 years diabetic eye disease is no longer the leading cause of blindness in adults of a working age. We still want to reduce the number of people going blind with diabetic retinopathy. It can cause damage to the small blood vessels on the back of the eye called the retina. These changes are called diabetic retinopathy, and they don’t normally cause any problems to your sight until the later stages of the disease. By having your eye’s screened every year, we can pick up these changes, in the early stages when treatment can be much more effective.

Our Company

Medical Imaging UK (part of EMIS Group plc) is the most experienced private company in the UK in providing Ophthalmic Imaging services to NHS trusts.

We have over 30 years of experience in ophthalmic photography and over 25 years of experience in diabetic retinopathy screening service provision using our highly developed, specialised and industry proven product.

Our company pioneered the mobile retinal camera technique visiting community GP practices almost two decades ago in Worcestershire. Forward thinking GP’s requested if the ophthalmic imaging equipment used in hospital ophthalmology departments could be used in practice. We gladly obliged and our Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Service (DRSS) arm of the company was created.

Your feedback is important to us. It helps us to improve the service we provide to our patients and to ensure that good practise is used company wide. If you have recently booked an appointment or attended for screening, please take our on-line surveys about your recent screening experience.
