(A poem !)
Once I met a patient who had proliferative diabetic retinopathy and neo-vascular glaucoma. 
Touched by her suffering I wrote this poem......

Postscript: An ODE to NVG

She was a girl just turned twenty-one;
A future nurse, when her course was done.
Her father has a history of DM;
But it does not cause him any problem.
The killer genes have hit her hard;
Attacking her eyes, which have no guard.
New vessels growing all over the disk;
There is also NVE, to increase the risk......
