Laser for Retinopathy

Just was told I had to have laser on my right eye..not exactly excited about this...but after 40 years of living with Type 1 I suppose I am not surprised. I don't have any other complications, on a pump and am making a conscious effort to lower my A1C. I am in Vancouver seeing Dr. Lica Chui...does anyone have any comments or suggestions?
