Last week, I had my annual eye exam. I had recently been having some trouble, I thought it neeeded a new prescription aince my control has gotten so much tighter over the last couple of years. Last year the doc said my eyes looked great, all signs of retinopathy were gone. This year tho…
This year he saw some signs of bleeding near my retina in both eyes. My left eye was the worst, and he couldn’t correct my vision to 20/20… 20/25 was as close as he could get on that eye.
I have my appt with a retinal specialist in the morning. I guess one of the things that has me kind of worried is the speed at which this appointment was set, no waiting for weeks.
It’s been 40 years, so I guess complications shouldn’t suprise me. It just irks the hell out of me that they start up after I finally get a serious handle on my control. My last 3 A1cs were 6.0, 5.8, 6.3… much better than the nearly 8 I was at two years ago. And, honestly, vision problems are probably the complication I fear most.
Guess we’ll see what he says in the morning. I set the appointment for first thing which I usually don’t do for eye exams. Probably won’t be getting much done at work until after lunch when I can actually read again
Several of my tweeps gave me some info/support about it and I am thankful for that!
I’ll let you know what he says… (Yes, Sara, it really is a man)
