You have a remarkably short attention span – I did mention in answer to an earlier question that diabetics are more prone to cataract, glaucoma and dry eye. This is another reason why a diabetic should have at least an annual check up with an eye doctor. He will not only look at the retina, but will also check the pressure of the eye and look at the optic disc to rule out glaucoma, examine the eye on a slit lamp biomicroscope to rule out early cataracts and test you for dry eye. The adage ‘a stitch in time saves nine’ was possibly dreamt up for a diabetic!
