I recently contracted diabetes. After starting insulin (within 3 days) my close-up vision is blurred.

Straingely, when i'm in bright sunlight my vision is not as blurred.
What's happening????

I am currently using the drug store reading glasses to help.

Usually upon diagnoses of diabetis, most people experiance blurred vision. Could it possible that you were experiancing blurred vision before you'r diagnoses and then brought these over the counter glasses? And, now that you'r blood sugars are getting under control you'r eyesight is getting better and therefore the glasses are causing blurred vision?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
In type 1 diabetes vision is not affected on diagnosis. It could be due to anxiety or refractory error.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
