I was diagnosed with type 2 about 2 weeks ago. I am taking Metformin and Glyburide. I have worn glasses for near sightedness for 20 years. I now now longer need glasses for distance, although need reading glasses. I used to see close up great.

Welcome to the community Leif13, I hope you find a lot of great support here.

Our eyes are very susceptible in our diabetes and even though this seems to be an improvement, I would have them checked out.

I went thru a period of very high levels for a few days and my distance glasses seemed to be not working for me. I was using my reading glasses. I also had hit my head very hard on a topsey turvy tomato planter...I saw stars. So we were not sure if that was the cause of it. I went back to normal in a day or two and am back to my distance and reading glasses. Everything is okay, but I was hopeful it would stay that way...oh well.
