Howdy Becky(?) WELCOME to DiabeticConnect!

Please don't fret about your vision. HAVE A Dr LOOK AT YOU! One of the first problems I had after first Dx'd was I had cataracts which clouded my vision. I still have an immature cataract in my right eye. When checked it hasn't progressed very far. My left eye is another matter. That one was so foggy I couldn't see anything through that lens, so I had it removed.

It could be a cataract, or it could be another more serious problem with your eyes.
It may not even be related to your diabetes. Please get it checked out. Your vision is very important! Take care of it, please.
