Good news! I'm very happy for you.
I have my eye check-up next week. It's belated, too, as I changed insurance (HMO) and had to get it together to find a new doctor, get records transfered, etc.
But my first cousin just "discovered" for the first time that he is diabetic (type 2) via a retinopathy-related bleed that almost blinded him in one eye.
Catching the proliferation EARLY is what the regular checks is all about, right?
