Josh & Lisa - Great posts and Lisa, I agree! It seems like all of a sudden they are making great strides in eye problem treatment for diabetics... I starteed with my eye problems about 10 years ago, and my eye doc is really GREAT! I am still having probs but we have come a long way with the treatnebts (you can read my story at my website:http://supportersofsurvivors.com) (nothing for sale there....I promise!)

Thanks Lisa, I will try. I think it was just a blow to my state of mind as I was at the moderate NPDR level for almost 10 years. I might be from the tighter control and hopefully I won't need laser but if I do I have great drs who have been watching me for decades. Fingers crossed. I just need to work on the stress...that has been out of control. ;-/

25 years ago I felt the same fear and frustration. Get the lasers and keep working on BG, stress levles, daily and things will look better. They are doing amazing things to help us keep from vision loss.

So it finally happened. I went from Moderate NPDR to Severe. I suspect PDR is not far away now. Yay for Diabetes.

Congratulations, Shoshana! I love hearing that your retinopathy has stopped progressing, that laser worked. I'm needing lots of laser these days <:-( You are giving me hope! - Also had cataract surgery in both eyes as you mention. That was a great thing. Didn't realize how degraded my sense of colors had become and now I see how beautiful the world is again! Anyway, good for you and thanks for letting us know!

My last laser( PRP) was in Jan but I still one day my vision is "clear" and sometimes my vision is blurry. My left eye was blurry for 2 days this week but today, my left eye is slowly clearing.
