In brief: Once a year
Yearly checks are fine unless you are diagnosed with retinopathy.
Then twice a year or more depending on the severity.

If your vision seems to be changing a lot or you already have some problems with your eyes due to diabetes, you may need to be seen more frequently.
The general rule of thumb is that diabetics should have their eyes checked once a year though.
