I don't know if wrinkled retina's or shrivelled up ones are the same, but my left eye retina shriveled up at the end of last year. I have had 3 operations on my eye, and for some reason it seems like it has straightened out all by itself. Perhaps there is still hope that yours will do the same? Just make sure those sugars are under controll. My A1C has been 6.5 for the last 10 months. Best of luck!

Oh dear. I am so sorry. Wrinkled retinas?? Seriously? Bad enough that our faces and bodies crinkle up, but now it's our retinas as well? Set that iron on low, Shoshana! Our retinas are fried enough as it is :-(
What is it like to look through wrinkled retinas?

Oops always hit comment before I write anything. Anyway, for me a dark background with white or yellow letters is easy to see, like the screen on my Animas pump.

Anyone care to give me an idea of where to start, please? I can't very well try several million color combinations at random.

Thanks.

GOOD LUCK & LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.

Yes, Shoshana, but I need some hint what colors to start with. What colors do you use?

Comment by shoshana27 on May 11, 2012 at 7:06am

TO MAPLESUGAR..ADJUST THE COLOR & 0THER THINGS ON THE COMPUTER UNTIL YOU FIND THE ONE THAT'S MOST COMFORTABLE FOR YOU.THAT'S WHAT I DID.

Hi!

I don't really think that my current question has much to do with my diabetes, but this seemed like a good place to ask.

I'm getting older. I have just been examined, and I don't have diabetic retinopathy. I do have some nerve anomaly which hasn't finished its runarounds yet, adn which may or may not be affecting my vision. I occasionally get short-term blurriness from changes in my BG, but I'm not sure that that's relevant either.

I often find it easier to make my own modifications in my computer's copy of other peoples web pages. For example, I sometimes enlarge the fonts and change them to boldface.

Can anyone suggest a basic text-on-background color scheme which usually helps, so I can use it as a starting point? Most of the pages I read are black-on-white, and I feel that some other scheme might be better. Black on yellow? Dark maroon on very light green?

Any ideas, please?

Thanks.
M.
