Whats wrong with my eyes!

I don’t know how many other newly diagnosed diabetics had to deal with this, but in the first three or so weeks after lowering my blood sugar my eyes were effed up big time. They weren’t focusing properly and I was having trouble seeing anything close. At the time I didn’t know anything about diabetes and I was pretty sure I was going blind. Google only made things x10 worse, I’m sure you can imagine trying to search for “eye problems” with “diabetes” anywhere in the search string. After finally seeing my endocrinologist about it I was assured it would go away and was entirely due to the rapid change in my blood sugar level.

Fortunately the issues slowly went away after about three weeks and after seeing an optometrist I was told I have 20/20 vision and no other issues found. I figured I would post about this since I couldn’t find anything to help me when i was dealing with this!
