In brief: Diabetes
Diabetes causes blurry vision in a number of ways, including a myopic shift from excess glucose in the lens, macular edema, retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhage, diabetic cataract.
Call your local ophthalmologist for a complete eye exam.

In brief: Can change vision
The increased glucose in his blood also increases the glucose inside the lens in the eye.
The lens with high glucose draws fluid via osmosis. This fluid increases the thickness of the lens, therefore; the power of the lens. The change in power may allow the patient to see better at near or better at distance depending on their previous prescription power. Once glucose stable, vision will be stable.
