Because it's a progressive disease and complications can strike regardless of how well you control it, unfortunately. Making positive changes reduces the risks, but it doesn't eliminate the possibility of complications. I'm sorry you're facing this.

Hi, it's happened to me too. But don't give up. After the treatment in your eyes keep your sugar and Ha1c in a normal range. In this way you are not going to be blind. Good luck
