Eye & Vision Board Index

I was diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy a few days ago. My left eye is fine but the vision in the right is about gone. The doctor says laser surgery MIGHT stop the loss of vision but will not restore it. My blood glucose and blood pressure are not under control. I'm also taking coumadin for a blood clot. Can I still have surgery with my glucose and bp out of control? Will I have to stop taking my meds before surgery? Since the vision is pretty much gone and can't be restored I'm much more afraid of having a stroke(they run in my family) and am OK with sacrificing the eye for an operation that doesn't sound very promising.
