Ok, as diabetics we all need our eyes checked. I go at least twice a yr especially since I can't be my numbers under control. My opthomalogist who was a wonderful man checked my eyes in March. I told him in my left eye in what seemed to be in the lower left area almost behind my eye I kept seeing flashes similar to when a bright light is flashed in your eyes. I went back a few months later and found out he had cancer but was still seing patients. I was still having the same issues but he still didn't find anything wrong. He did check for diabetic retnopothy(sp?) I made a third appointment with his partner and when I got there found out my optho had died that morning and the partner was very shaken. He also found nothing wrong. I still have been seeing this light and more frequently. I'm getting nervous. Do you think I should find a new optho.? I feel odd going back for a 4th time this year.
