The retinal photos are worth it if you’re in a high-risk group (me, I’m a Type 2 diabetic — major danger). My doctor can pull up my progression over the years and tell if that shadow over there is new, growing, or just the same old thing again).

Not high-risk? Well, how much is peace of mind worth? Assuming that having that data will give it to you, rather than making you anxious.
