My apologies

I kind of forgot to mention that I had retinopathy issues and I lost the sight on my right eye and it's a miracle according to doctors that my left eye is still functioning despite extensive damage inside. I'm not sharing this to gain sympathy, but I thought I should share. Thank you.

I do! I've been told that it's stayed the same for some time now. I'm 36 yrs. old, but the Retina Specialist says that I could be a diabetic that has had diabetes for 10 years! I've had diabetes for most of my life.

Well that's the trick , always make it remains same and no new blood vessels. No glaucoma issues I hope.
