When screening the diabetic population for diabetic retinopathy (DR), many other retinal conditions will be identified.

The most common conditions which may be diagnosed as DR are retinal vein and artery occlusion, hypertensive retinopathy, arterial emboli, and retinal changes due to blood disorders, for example, anaemia. These need local protocols for medical management.

Familiarity and pattern recognition are important to recognize common abnormalities, for example, drusen, chorioretinitis, asteroides hyalosis, choroidal naevi, and age-related macula degeneration.
