    Hello -

    I'm a T2 diabetic and notice that my distance vision changes about a half
    diopter with blood sugar changes. What is the physiology behind this? My
    last dialated retinal exam shows normal.

    Changes in swelling in the lens and other ocular tissue. Nothing to do
    with the retinal bleeding and leakage which is what the retinal exam is
    looking for.
