Six months ago, I had my annual dilated eye exam. For the first time ever, the eye doctor found a leaky vessel. In my left eye. It was small, and she told me that after almost 29 years with diabetes, this was bound to happen. She reassured me that there was no reason to be alarmed right now, but that we should keep a close eye on it. (Hahahahaha, close EYE on it!! I crack myself up.)
So today, we took another look. (Tee hee, LOOK. Okay, enough puns?)
The good news is, the bleeder in my left eye is gone.
The bad news, now there is one in my right eye.
Sigh. Again, it's very small and not in a "dangerous" part of my eye. For now, we'll wait another six months and check again.
But we know what that means. Six more months for me to worry about the state of my eyes. Damn this disease is frustrating some times.
