What do you recommend if I had a eye test recently and the optician advise me to check my sugar levels asap, should I be worried?

In brief: Retinopathy

Its possible that they saw some signs in the back of the eye, specifically the retina, that indicated a systemic problem. Common things would include diabetes (high blood sugar) or hypertension (high blood pressure).
A screening exam by a primary care doctor would be recommended. Good luck.
