Can high blood sugar cause you to have eye pain?

My 10 yr old said his eyes burn when his BS is dropping sometimes. He has weird symptoms though. Never the same ones. He mainly just doesn't "feel good" if it's high or low. So we just check if he feels bad and go from there

No. It kinda waters, and it is on my blind eye. I think it is just tired, or allergies.

So you have one that works and one that doesn't? That imbalance can cause pain, just because one is working so hard. But if you are having high sugar levels, you do want them to be checked out.

I am blind on my right eye, and it's my eyelid that was hurting. It feels better the next day, after I sleep.

Maybe something just got in there to irritate it. I had a small piece of sawdust in my eye a few months back and it swelled shut and I couldn't use it for about 3 days. What a mess. It finally came out and was great.

I don't know that it causes pain, but changing pressure in you eye may be a cause for pain and diabetes can be a contributing factor to that. What you might want to do is have your eyes examined to see what might be going on inside that you can't see. I just had my exam done and shared with the community how they can photograph your eye to see what is going on. http://www.diabeticconnect.com/discussions/16943-i-ve-got-my-eye-on-you

Do you have blurry vision or floaters in you eyes? Those are signs of high sugar as well.
