I know that uncontrolled BS can effect your eye sight. My problem is my eye sight. When I looking at something it will get all blury and at times it takes awhile to get clear. I at first thought my sugar was to high. When this happens I have tested and the highest it has been was 140. Also at times when this happens it feels like my head is going to explode it hurts so much. Does anyone have any ideas.

Have you checked for macular degeneration?

No I have not. That is a thought thou. I am going to see about getting a exam done. I am going to call in the morning.

This actually happens to me quite a bit. It happens for me when my BS is over 160 and doesn't go away until I get my BS down. I've had my eyes checked and it was fine. I definitely can't drive when my eyes get blurry. I can't even read the street signs at times.
I hope you find a answer soon.

I have had this also but it usually happens for me when my bs is over 150. My blurry vision happens sometimes in the morning when my bs has been in the normal range and usually it just clears up. I don't know why this all happens but it could be many unknown reasons. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Thank you. It just has me a little concerned because it has happened different times of the day even when I am driving. I guess the next step will be to get checked out.
