The pain really hits the third day and all you want to do is sleep so you can forget the pain..At the present time this is how it looks and you can't do much of anything. Hopefully you will have someone around who can read for you and do what you can't do for yourself. Thank my dear God for my son Kevin who helps me get around and checks on me. I guess he has noticed that this was different surgery than the last 3 times which were lasik. As for now I will be a little under the weather and will read your pages when I am able. I will tell you how it turns out on day 4 when I live it. Later good friends. .

Fact remains that diabetics have brittle blood cells and excessive sugar,no doubt can be curtailed by insulin but truth about eyesight is strict discipline wherein there is zero tolerance to sugar because this is the main culprit.
To a certain extent a diabetic could be susceptible to Blood pressure which also means that salt needs to be kept on the minimal too as that has the similar debilitating effect as the vessels constrict causing the bleeding.

Surgeries may help but without change of diet, blindness is the only thing that comes in as all these things have error rates that cause further damage rather than rectification.

I have had glasses since I was young and I really hate them and have wanted to get laser surgery for some time now, but do not have the money. It is good to hear about it though, hope you are soon without pain and have good eyes after.
