Has anyone had retinopathy? I have one eye that is giving me fits. I have an opthomologist working on it. She shot me over 500+ times with the laser. I guess now we have to wait for it to heal before she shoots me some more. In the mean time more vessels are bursting. I m very thankful it's only one eye. But I'm getting frustrated. I can't drive and I'm like that lady on the commercial that let's the raccoon in tninking it's the cat.

LOL... I love that commercial. I am sorry that is you though, how frustrating that has to be.

My dad had retinopathy in one eye. It filled with blood from the damaged capillaries. He also was treated with laser and it did improve greatly. I don't recall how long it took for him, but giving up driving was something he didn't care about. He hated to drive. My dad suffered very quietly with his diabetes. We never heard him complain, though I knew it was frustrating to him in many ways.
