“It’s very, very scary – I don’t want to lose my sight”

Loving mother, Carrie-Anne, has had type 1 diabetes since she was nine. Now 43, diabetic retinopathy is causing bleeding and swelling inside her eyes. She struggles with blurred vision and ‘floaters’ – large shapes obscuring her vision.

Carrie-Anne has also recently suffered a haemorrhage in her left eye. It has created a lot of pressure. If not treated correctly, she could experience permanent and profound vision loss. She will soon undergo urgent surgery to try to save as much of her remaining sight as possible. Read more about Carrie-Anne’s story.
