where people touched by diabetes help each other.

hi**** I have had laser on both eyes. I had a cataract done on one eye because they needed to do something else. Dr. said it wasn't unusual for a T1D to have cataracts done early so as to limit future problems. My eyes have been stable for 5 years.
