Retinopathy: Post Laser Surgery

In Diabetic Retinopathy blood vessels start leaking so your eyes start to form new blood vessels. This is taken care of by light laser surgery to stop new veins from forming. Blood that leaked into your eyes develops into vitreous gel and must be removed by a heavier laser surgery.

Five Days After Laser Eye Surgery

It has seemed like forever that I have had eye problems. A week after my first laser surgery on my right eye, it is mostly cleared up. Much better but I am still having trouble seeing out of it as i have a large cataract on it that has not been removed yet.

Up Next

I have at least 2 or 3 more laser eye surgeries to go. All heavy laser surgeries. I had 3 light laser surgeries before the first heavy one. Each one weren't so bad as I easily recovered by the second day.
I know I can't express the love of nature and this beautiful world that I see everyday and imagine not seeing it is a devastating thought to me.

Please Keep Your Sugar Under Control

These surgeries wouldn't have been necessary had I got my sugar under control. Now I try to take my sugar level every day. I have been keeping it under 200 mostly. A year ago I could not say that. My sugar stayed around 300 to 500 a day so I quit taking my sugar level. I gave up essentially. The result was Diabetic Retinopathy. Your eye sight is a precious gift...I will NEVER abuse it again.

Laser Surgery For Left Eye

My left eye was done Thursday, October 10, 2013 and its healing faster than the right one did. Must be that ointment the doctor gave me to put on it. I had an anxiety spell while there. I will be embarrassed when I go back to see him. No one likes to have a fainting spell at any time.

A lot of people do not think of vision loss as being a reality of being diabetic. Just another reason to eat healthy right from the start.
