Focus on Control ( Diabetes )
Are your eyes playing tricks on you? Fluctuations in your vision, from blurry to clear and then blurry again, could mean that your diabetes is out of control. If your vision improves on its own, you don’t have permanent damage or retinopathy.
The changes are probably due to major changes in your blood glucose levels. This triggers an ebb and flow of fluid into the eyes. When your blood glucose level increases, your body requires more fluid to maintain a healthy balance. Some of this fluid can come from your eyes, which will affect their function and structure. Blurred vision is a common result.
To help this condition, focus on diabetes control. Postpone an eye exam until your blood glucose levels are fairly consistent, which can take several weeks. Don’t try to buy new glasses every time your vision changes. Instead, spend some time planning your meals and getting some exercise to bring your blood glucose levels nearer to normal. This is just another way that your body shows you when your system is out of balance. And don’t forget to have a dilated eye exam every year to check for retinopathy
