Had Cataract surgery spring of 2008 on my left eye, waiting on my right which is not really needed now, was legally blind in the left eye, but after the surgery went to 20/25 vision, from 25/ 55, was only 52 years old which is early for that surgery, but thanks to Diabetes it progresses early

I for one have been more diligent in having my Ophthalmologist do the annual Diabetic Retinopathy Exam.

I had both eyes done in the spring of 2010. Those lovely little intraocular implants are the best invention in the WORLD! :D

I know several of my non diabetic friends who had the surgery done and now no longer need the glasses they wore most of their lives.
