[IP] Eye problems

In response to the thread about eye problems...
I've had laser surgery twice to correct swollen blood vessels on my
retinas. I just had a followup appointment this week - my first since I
started pumping in mid-July. My retinologist is pretty knowlegable about
diabetes, pumps, DCCT, etc. He said that they (the mysterious they) have
seen instances where recent pumpers will experience a phase where their
eyes will "act up" as their bodies and blood sugars "settle down". YMMV as
to how long this will last for.
He also said that, on average, most diabetics will experience retina
problems after 10-14 years being diabetic. I made it almost 20 (always
striving to be above average).
