Hey everyone,

New to the forum diagnosed type 1 diabetic for 18 years, has a sweet tooth and likes a good pint a lager from time to time. Just wondering if anyone has some info or advice for me regarding the following.
Just wondering if you need any further documents/paperwork before having laser eye treament from your gp/practitioner.I'm seriously considering having my eyes lasered. I'm worried about long term after-care and the fact that im slightly off course with my blood sugar levels at the minute. (22 year old male enjoys having a few pints through the week not in excess) thanks.

Hello Steve, from the opposite side of the pond. Here in the states we would have an ophthamologist do the laser surgery on our eyes. Is your GP a specialist in dealing with eye problems and laser treatment? I don't know about the paperwork, I am sure it might be quite different in the UK.
