I am T1 LADA DXed about 10 yeurs ago.
I have had pretty poor to fair control for a lot of that time. I do best when I do very low-carb and just really eat clean.
But, whenever I am having a “good season”, my vision suffers. When my sugars are down at or near where they should be, things get pretty blurry,especially on my computer.
My question – when I saw my eye doctor last, he changed my prescription a little bit, I laid out a small fortune for new glasses, and now they seem like they aren’t going to work very well. I was NOT high when I went to the eye doctor, and I am not high now, so it seems to me I should be OK. Would it have been best to have been lower/normal for a good week or so before I went to see him? This has happened every time I go – the glasses don’t improve my vision, and in most cases, it is worse. Will my eyes adjust to the new glasses, even with normal blood sugars?
It seems like this is important information that diabetics should know when addressing eye care, but I have never heard anyone say anthing about it.
