How can you correct blurry vision if you have diabetes?

ANSWER

To correct your blurry vision, you need to get your blood sugar back into the target range (70-130 milligrams per deciliter, or mg/dL, before meals, and less than 180 mg/dL 1 to 2 hours after a meal). It may take as long as 3 months for your vision to fully get back to normal.

Tell your eye doctor. She can let you know if this is a symptom of a more serious problem.
