    I have had type 2 diabetes, hypertension and glaucoma for many years. My my fasting and postprandial lab readings are in the 90s and my A1C is 5.x.

    However any time my fasting or postprandial go below 90 or above 100 I get eye pain and headaches. I have been to a number of doctors and they say my readings won't do that. Ophthalmologists also say diabetes hasn't affected my eyes

    I have problems in the blood vessels and nerves in my hands and feet and take medication for that. I also have thin optic nerves may be due to glaucoma

    Has anyone experienced such eye pain or headaches?
