I keep my diabetes mostly under control.
THE BLURRING AND KINKED LINES STARTED 7 DAYS AGO.
nEXT EXAMINATION ON THE 29 OF OCTOBER
It appears you have symptoms of wet macular degeneration. Fortunately, there is treatment in the form of eye injections.
It is most effective if done early.
I'd recommend you call your ophthalmologist when they open and ask for an urgent appointment.
