pippistrellodaqua :

I am happy to help you with your question today.


pippistrellodaqua :

Cataracts mature over time at different rates for different people. Usually the cataract is not just noticed one day, but degrades the vision over time.


pippistrellodaqua :

A sudden foggy or blurry eye could be due to several causes. I strongly suggest you receive an eye examination to determine the cause.


pippistrellodaqua :

I will stay on for a few minutes to answer any other follow-up questions. Please don't forget to offer a positive rating once your question has been answered fully.


Customer:

I have been a diabetec for 10 years. Is it related


pippistrellodaqua :

Sorry, I stepped out for a bit. Yes, the diabetes could absolutely have something to do with it. It could also be something like a retinal detachment. Whatever it is it should be evaluated.


pippistrellodaqua :

We often see bleeding in the back part of the eye with diabetes. Bleeding can often cause a painless blurryness that, again, needs to be checked.


pippistrellodaqua :

Please let me know if you have any further questions. Keep me posted as to what the doctor determines your problem to be.
