Hi, I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago as type 2. Since before that I've noticed my sight getting worse. When I first saw the DN 3 weeks ago, she explained that high blood sugar can leave like a film on the eyes and it would get better. It has got worse to the point where I cannot read a book. I use a Samsung tablet and the font is as large as it can go and even with my glasses on, the text isn't very clear. I'm sorry that this is large font but it is blurred to me. The DN checked my blood sugar this morning and was very pleased that it has gone down (even though I had porridge for breakfast 2 hours earlier). What I need to know is, how long is it likely to take to improve? (I know, a bit like how long is a piece of string). I have been sent an appointment for eye screening but it isn't until October and we move out of Cornwall next Wednesday so I've had to cancel. Hoping someone can help.
