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.

YOU HAVE TO TRY TO SEE WHICH FITS YOUR EYES.WHAT'S GOOD FOR ME MIGHT NOT BE GOOD FOR YOU.I DON'T REMEMBER HOW I DID IT.YOU JUST HAVE TO EXPERIMENT OR HAVE SOMEONE HELP YOU
GOOD LUCK & LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.

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

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.

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!)
