I'm a little overdue for a standard eye test and since I am not seeing as clearly as I was out of my current specs I dropped into Specsavers today to make an appointment for a test (may still return to ASDA for the glasses, but the test there was very basic). I made the appointment and queried what they actually do during the test and the Manager who I was speaking to told me this that and the other and I asked if they still inspect the back of the eyes as they used to and he told me that they do take a photo, but not with drops. During the conversation I said I was a little concerned that my eyesight seems to have changed over a relatively short period of time and hoped it was not due to diabetes. There followed an almost surreal conversation during which he told me that as a type one I should be OK as long as I was well managed as Type ones do not "go up and down all the time like Type 2s". I said I thought he had that the wrong way round, to which he responded that his wife is a T1 and she always keeps between 4 and 7. Now I didn't want to get into this too much at the time 'cos it was inappropriate but it struck me that maybe she only tests before meals, or maybe she's a low carber. I know some on the Libre FB group do seem to be able to achieve flat lines, but they are usually doing Bernstein and I'm sorry I cannot stick to carb levels that low. Does anyone on here, manage not to have spikes of some sort or another after meals? I mean I can behave myself quite well as far as food is concerned, but even so and even by bolussing ahead of time I simply can't get rid of a spike over 7 if I even sniff a slice of bread.
