• Why do I have blurry vision as a diabetic?


    Question:
    I am a diabetic and experience blurry vision every other day. What eye condition is that? My ophthalmologists told me to control my blood sugar without explaining in detail.

    Answer:
    Many conditions cause temporary blurred vision, including elevated blood sugar levels. Without performing a full exam, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause. But with elevated blood sugar levels, the lens in the eye can swell and cause blurred vision that improves when blood sugar levels normalize. Follow up with your ophthalmologist to better understand the cause of your blurred vision, and find ways to manage your blood sugar with physical activity, glucose monitoring (device that checks your blood sugar), and the right meal plan.
