    Eye problems?

    I know I need to go get my eyes checked, but I figured I would ask here anyways.

    Does anyone have problems with their eyes since being diagnosed? It seems like I am having trouble focusing on things, and I have to close one eye to really focus on anything. I already have to wear glasses to see anything long-distance, but its never been anything like how it is now.

    Eyes can change with age. Just be sure to see an eye doc who can check you for glaucoma along with everything else every time you have them checked.

    Have you had your blood sugar checked? The last time I saw my eye doctor he said blood sugar can cause change in eye sight.

    I haven't had my blood sugar tested in about 2 months, I go back next month for bloodwork. I think I will make an appointment with the eye doc just to be on the safe side.

    Addisonians are also prone to cateracts. So have your eye doctor check for cateracts, besides the glaucoma.
