Glad you are seeing Drs. about your eyes. It is very scarey when you are having this happen to you. My Dad had his retina detach without warning, then his other eye started to have problems. He was pre diabetic. One of my sister's and a cousin have had problems with tears in their retinas, they do not have diabetes. Sometimes it just seems to happen. My left eye was bruised by an eye test and caused a major blood leak in the eye that is hard to see around. It healed on its own, but my Drs kept a close watch on it.My Dad's eye Dr. had him take PreserVision from Bausch & Lomb. It has vitamin A, C,and E. Plus zinc and copper.

Ok you say you have bleeding in your right eye-I assume that means a leaky blood vessel? I guess your Dr. is waiting to see if it heals on its own? There is laser surgery to seal off those vessels that leak. As far as the left eye, I konw nothing about the long-term prospects of a detached retina, but knowledge is power, so please educate yourself. If you have high blood pressure, get it under control now! It is extra pressure on the eye's vessels. In fact, anything that raises your blood pressure, even temporarily, is not good for your eyes! No straining either! If youre not already, start taking vitamins specially formulated for eye health; it should include vitamins A, C, and E, zeaxanthin, lutein and zinc. Im sending prayers up for you tonight sweetheart! Dont worry yourself cause stress is the enemy!!! :)

Libby-Jo what are your blood sugar levels? From having the sixth nerve palsy my doctor told me that it was my blood sugar level and that I have to get it under control and that would help the healing process. You will be in my prayers for healing and your sight.
