I had another post-op eye exam today to check the progress of my cataract surgery done in May. Everything went well and I asked my doctor about the non-proliferative retinopathy that I have that was diagnosed last July and he was happy to tell me that I have no signs of retinopathy. He explained to me that about 75% of all people with diabetes show some form of retinopathy after having diabetes for 15+ years. Keeping your blood sugar under control will help to delay retinopathy. My vision improved since my last post-op check-up in June and I see 20/25. I can pass a driver's eye exam as is with no glasses, but I still need glasses to see 20/20. I hit my local Walmart Vision Center today and laid down $370 for some new glasses. Since my eyes are so sensitive to light, I got the transition lenses which really jacked up the price. It was a small price to pay to keep my vision as clear and sharp as possible. Gosh my eyes are worth alot of money!
