First anterior segment examination was done with the help of slit lamp, and applanation tonometer after thorough examination of anterior segment, posterior segment was thoroughly examined. Pupils of patients were dilated with the help of Tropicamide 0.5% with Phenylepherine. After full dilatation of pupil fundus examination was done after 30 mins. The patients were evaluated for diabetic retinopathy and findings such as microaneurysm, dot and blot hemorrhages, venous dilatation, intraretinal microvascular aneurysm, neovascularisation at the disk, neovascularisation elsewhere, hard exudates, macular edema were noted.
