Does anybody else have this problem. I was on a long drive yesterday, I wasnt driving. I was pretty hungry, but my distance vision just went blurry. I ate a yogurt and banana and I could see better. I am near sighted already but my vision gets pretty bad when I am hungry. I try to carry something in my purse for this reason and I am nervous about driving and having this problem. Thanks!
I get hungry and my eyes never play games on me. Maybe you should go see a doctor.
Your blood sugar may be going too low when you're hungry. You probably need to eat every 3 hours to keep things steady, with more lean protein and less sugar.
You should go and be checked for diabetes...blurry vision is one of the signs (my grandfather had this symptom alone when he was diagnosed many many years ago)....No doubt there are other more benign reasons but it can't hurt to check it out....good luck...(when I am hungry I shake and feel like crying sometimes and feel confused--I don't have diabetes but I am fairly certain I am heading down that track and have insulin resistance which my doctor does not test for...I also carry all my weight in the middle which is bad apparently)...
Hi collectm. I have the same problem with my eyes getting blurry when I'm famished. It's a pain in the neck, and it's definitely due to low blood sugar in my case. I can see my eyes begin to focus better as I eat. I got a complete workup on diabetes and don't have it, but it would be worth mentioning to your doctor. You might try carrying a protein bar around with you so you don't get so depleted. I try not to go more than 3 hours without at least a snack. For me, sometime after blurred vision comes fainting, so I pay close attention to it.
they are right speaking from my own personal experience when your blood sugar is out of whack it will effect your vision.. Definitely go see your doctor and have them test you for diabetes. I hope all works out well for you
I have the same problem. is rare when i feel hungry, all i feel is pain in my eyes, can't focus, and feel confused... but right after i eat everything goes back to normal. i already went to the doctor, and apparently everything is fine. Even my guclose... since I feel this is not normal i bought guclose tester (like the one diabetis uses) just to check, so the next time i was feeling like that i check my guclose and it was 93, which is more than normal. usually when fasting a guclose should be from 70-100... so why if my guclose is 93 i feel this way??? very strange... but i guess the world will never know... so i carry protein bars everywhere... ALSO, it has to be a protein bar or something heavy, i tried eating chocolate bars, thin wheats, mixed nuts, etc... and nothing will work, i have to eat heavy or something with lots of protein... i hate it, i can not diet or eat light because i'm there almost dying... i guess that's how it was meant to be... so i work out alot just try and not gain weight... i wish there was a cure, i hate feeling like that, beside i rarely feel hungry!!! but can't stop eating because my eyes hurt after about 4 without eating...
Since I wrote this post I have lost 42 lbs and am down to my size I am suppose to be. I am now in maintenance and I will tell you, I will never take the weight issue for granted again. This was a huge gift for me and maintenance is so much easier than dieting. since maintaining I have not had the blurry vision and things seem so much more stable. Theres hope for you all and I believe once the diets over, you too will go back to normal vision. Good luck, and take any weight loss you may have as a gift and dont squander it:)
