Keep Sight of Your Eyesight!

People with diabetes face special risks from glaucoma, which can quietly cause vision loss before diabetics even realize they have the disease.

I read your post and I was about to respond but I really didn't know what to say, I hope that things work out for you, continue doing what you need to do, I wish for you the best, there are a lot of things in this world to see and admire sometimes we take our sense of sight for granted until it's either compromised or lost, don't ever give up, there is a lot to see !

My eye sight is shot, has been for years long before I developed diabetes. With out lenses everything 1 foot away is nothing but a big blur. But I do need to make an appointment since I need a refill on my contacts pretty soon.

You have the greatest reason in the world to protect and maintain your eye sight, he's the love of your life, your son ! (Don't miss seeing a moment of his growth).

I am really staying on top of it…The thing that scares me most(one of the things, there are many) I think, is the thought of loosing my eyesight…I think of all the beauty I would miss!

I just found out on my last eye appointment
that you can have perfect eye pressure, and still
get glaucoma. We learn everyday, dont we?
