Ok..has anyone here ever had an articial lens put in their eyes?
I have diabetes, but not for long...I think it was march 04 that I was dx, but it was said to be drug induced..LOL my fam doc said..if that is the case, yuo will make the medical journals tongue
Anyway..I do manage to control my sugars, and the eye doc doesnt know why my sight is failing, usually it will fail after someone has had diabetes for years, but dont control it.
He says he cant promise  I will not lose sight in both eyes, but..I had a psychic tell me not long ago, that I will not lose my vision..I know, I know..not supposed to go to psychics, it was a freebie and I cudnt resist tongue    
Anyway, just wondering if anyone here has experienced this.
LOL Babs, thats why you didnt know..cuz I never said anything tongue
Thanks in advance,

Hi Diane,

  I'm glad you told us about this. I'm sorry this is happening to you. I wish your eye doctor could find the source of the problem so he could address it right.

  I have never had any kind of eye surgery. Hopefully, someone will come along soon that can help you better with this. When will you be having the surgery? I will be praying the surgery goes well. Take care and Keep us updated on this.

Diane, I'm not familiar with this proceedure either, but I wanted to say that I hope it goes well and I hope it's not a complicated surgery. That would be scary to worry about losing your sight.

Take care and you'll be in my prayers.
