Edema will clear once the fluid buildup dissipates.
Pan-retinal photocoagulation for proliferative - not sure why it gets better, if it does. It might be a brain adjustment thing; because the damage is permanent. Are your eyes still dilated? I'm having a hard time remembering what it was like in the days after. That was 18 years ago.
Some remain sensitive to light and cannot drive after dark.
Mine are somewhat sensitive, but I can drive fine. Real dark, wet nights I generally don't.
Depth perception will be impacted. I have a very hard time catching a baseball, and I have trouble hitting tennis balls. But I can knock a hockey puck out of the air fine with my stick.
On MDI and doing well. A1Cs range from 5.6 to 6.4. December 2016 was 6.1. 12 911's in my career; a few highs; lots of shots. Diagnosed Oct 19th, 1975.
Proliferative retinopathy March 1994, 4,000 laser, vitrectomy Oct. 2006. Vision 20/25 in right, 20/40 in left (slight cataract).
