Can Low Blood Sugar Cause Blurry Vision
The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
Possibly: Floaters are usually a natural condition that occurs as the gel that fills the back of the eye forms cracks over time. High blood sugar can lead to damage, abnormal blood vessel growth, and breaks in the small blood vessels in the back of the eye, which can in turn cause bleeding in the eye. You may experience this as floaters. An eye doctor can quickly determine the cause of your floaters. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: Unless the pressure is staggeringly high, there is usually no effect on the vision. Wavy vision should be investigated by your ophthalmologist especially if it is of recent onset. Blood pressure does need control for other reasons (heart, brain) but not for alterations in eye vision. ...Read more
Not typically!: If the blood pressure really goes high, where it starts causing damage, then there might be black spots that are fixed, but not floating! one may have much fluctuations in vision from high glucose and of coarse in very advanced stages both the high pressures and sugars can cause bleeding in the eye which would be floaters! but that is typically after many years of neglect! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Extremely high blood pressures (usually greater than 200 mmhg for the top number) can result in "end organ" damage including changes to the retinal arteries and short-term vision changes. If you're concerned that your high blood pressure is changing your vision, you should see your doctor to discuss treatment options. ...Read more
Yes, indeed. Get Rx : Branch and central vein occlusion are a known cause of blurred vision in hypertensive patients. Early treatment of both the hypertension and the vein occlusion is essential because damage to the retina can be irreversible if ignored. Early treatment with growth factor inhibitors and steroids can restore vision. Other types of damage can occur to the retina with chronic high blood pressure. ...Read more
Yes it can: Espcially if your high bs has been taking place for a prolonged period of time. The mechanism is due to shift in water from the lenses and the subsequent change in its dimensions. It is however temporary and will not cause permananet damage to the eye lenses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can cause low BP: Your history says you've received IV hydration, are hypotensive, dehydrated and depressed. You can have high hr too depending on how dehydrated you are. As for droopy eyelid (ptosis), that's not caused normally from dehydration, but if you're tired, exhausted from being dehydrated, it may seem to you that it is, when it's not functionally related. Iv hydration doesn't usually change droopy eyelids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Seems unlikely : Low blood sugars stimulate a counter regulatory response whereby hormones including adrenaline and cortisol are secreted into the blood stream to help the body make more sugar. Both of these hormones tend to increase blood pressure. When the brain is deprived of its fuel source counter regulation works in a way to keep up the blood supply and glucose feeding the brain. ...Read more
Low thyroid & vision: This is a very good question!. Here is my answer. Yes it can, but the levels of hypothyroidism (low thyroid) we see in practice are not likely to do so. Essentially your thyroid function has to be so low that the patient's metabolism is actually stagnant.... Practically stopped! in a condition that used to be called myxedema, in which every organ function may be impaired. Even coma can occur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blood clot: Whether a blood clot causes blurry vision depends on the location of the clot. If it's on the surface of the eye, this will not cause any problems. However if a doctor tells you that you have a clot in one of the blood vessels inside your eye, then your vision could definitely be affected by this. ...Read more
Yes but possibly: Yes, it can, but that is unlikely. Usually it's something else. Best to get checked out but an ophthalmologist. Also, you should have a blood pressure machine at home so you can check your blood pressure when you develop these episodes. Good luck and feel better. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends : Hypertension can have wide range consequences to your health. Your eyes are very sensitive to high BP & can manifest it in a dilated eye examination. Serious retinal vascular disease can result in irreversible loss of vision. When caught early & treated systemically, most ocular disease (eg., vein occlusion, optic neuropathy) can be managed to prevent loss of vision, But exceptions apply to severe ...Read more
