I went to see an Opthamologist yesterday expecting the worst...I've heard that diabetes can cause some eye problems and my vision has gotten really bad in the past year..I use reading glasses now and I can't read without them...
So, after he did an exam that took over an hour, I won't go into detail, but it was the best I have ever had, he informed me that I have 20/15 in both eyes!!! That's better then perfect!!  Whoopie Doo!!
But I still have to use the reading glasses and he said that my vision will get better once my numbers are consistantly lower...So, that is at least one good thing...

We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...

Well, Rhonda, that's great.  What a relief!  I know I always have apprehension before these exams and for me the nervousness ends up to be worse than the appointment itself.  Congratulations and all the more reason to to keep good blood sugar numbers.
