Blood Sugar and Vision

I think it’s widely accepted that both hypoglycemia and diabetes do or can have effects on your vision. But since we’ve proven that your vision changes throughout the day, the fact these diseases may cause short or long term vision problems is important. If these diseases cause short and long term vision changes, our blood sugar levels directly tie in to the way we see and how our brains function.

So by way of hypoglycemia, we know that your vision blurs if your blood sugar gets too low. Similarly, we know that your vision can blur if your blood sugar gets or stays too high for too long.

Here is how we trap people in diabetes or hypoglycemia with glasses:

You skip breakfast [which is not normal for you], and make it to the eye doctor a little late. You grab some coffee in the waiting room, and head on back to get your eyes checked. 

You just signed up for a year of misery. Maybe a lifetime. The fact that your blood sugar will be lower than normal will affect your vision readings, and will cause your eye doctor to write a script stronger than you would’ve even needed beforehand. The caffeine has a similar effect. The biggest issue, though, is the part where if you wear your glasses or contacts all the time, you will never give your eyes [brain] a chance to find equilibrium again. Your vision will seem blurry when you make improvements, because your vision would differ from your prescription. So the anxious, blurry, person that walked into the eye doctor, will be your new normal. And this will snowball throughout the rest of your life.

This trap causes mental and physical anxiety, hypertension, and all sorts of other problems we associate with getting old. It will effect your sleep. It will literally take your mind from you. Take control of your life. Take control of your mind. The eyes are the key.

Note: I am not saying that there are note true cases of diabetes and hypoglycemia outside of the scope of this post. Don’t do anything stupid.
