My diabetes started in 2015. I have no other health problems as a result of the diabetes except my eyes, which slowly deteriorated. I couldn’t tell that there was anything wrong particularly, but right from the start the first scan showed that I had macular oedema and I was immediately referred to the hospital for further investigations. With the prospect of unpleasant treatments in the future, I was so pleased to be able to be offered the Noctura 400 sleep mask and my experience has been really good, as I’ve felt that the hospital really cared about my eyesight. It was fully explained what I had to do, how the mask worked, and the fact that you used it every night, which has not been a problem.
Initially I was always aware of the mask being there, but over time that has gone completely. I just know that my eyes have improved. From the scan results the little swellings which are the macular oedema have virtually disappeared. The fact that I don’t have to have the injections is great, my ophthalmologist is really pleased with my progress and I want to continue using it indefinitely! It’s really been important to me to have used the mask and I would definitely recommend it to other people that have the same condition. It could be a life-changer for some people!
