Which is to say, I saw my ophthalmologist this morning. After being thoroughly scolded for not seeing him in June 2012 as requested, he conducted the dreaded dilated exam.
Now, for a number of years, I've had spots in my eyes. Small ones, ranging from 1-2 spots in each eye. The number varies, but they're always there. Until today. "Previous non-proliferative background diabetic retinopathy not visualized" - though they're still there, they weren't able to be observed today.
This calls for a cupcake celebration.
