Metformin, 53, no
Eye Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 1 year ago

What is your dose of Metformin?

Are you doing regular exercises?

Eye Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 1 year ago

You have to increase the dose of Metformin.

You may also need some other anti diabetic medications too for this high blood sugar.

Your vision changes would get better with good control of blood sugar and these are likely to be reversible.

You should also do regular physical activity, if not already doing. Good control of diet also would be recommended.
