Why are type II diabetics more likely to have retinopathy?

I read that Type II diabetics are more likely to have diabetic retinopathy on presentation, but I would have thought it would be more likely that Type I presented with it. Does any one know why this is?

Are scaphoid fractures more easily seen on x-ray after a few days?

So, I've been in A+E recently, and noticed that for some types of fractures (such as suspected scaphoid fractures) doctors often tell the patient to return for repeat x-rays, or to go the fracture clinic, after a few days. Why is a fracture more easily seen after a few days?
