Dr. James :

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

Dr. James :

how is your vision with the glasses?

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

clear but i still see blurry vison

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

a bit

Dr. James :

to answer your question, shortsightedness does not cause insulinoma.

Dr. James :

insulinoma can affect your blood sugar, which in turn and affect your vision. causing it to fluctuate.

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

ok

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

so how does my eyes just go bad over night i use to have great vison

Dr. James :

what did your eye doctor say was the cause?

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

they didn't

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

they just say read letters then give me glasses

Dr. James :

how are your blood sugars?

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

not to good but i was tested with a prick to the finger and they always say it wasnt normal

Dr. James :

i suspect your fluctuating sugars is causing the vision changes.

Dr. James :

you should first address the insulinoma.

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

ok

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :

sometimes i cant focus my eyes at all

JACUSTOMER-370kkj63- :
