In brief: Yes

Fluid in the eyeball fluid parallels sugar in the blood.
Too much sugar in the blood can change your refraction.

In brief: Glucose changes visi

Glucose changes affect the lens of the eye and can cause blurry vision.
If you have diabetes, and are having high glucoses, correct them before you seek or get new glasses. The change in the lens should be temporary and fix when your glucose is better controlled.
