I have been a diabetic for 23 years, I was diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy 2 years ago and the only thing that I have concerns about is how blurry my vision gets I feel like they are dry all the time and I have been noticing myself using visine way more. I thank you for taking time to read and answer my question it really means a lot.
KRAE91 you should make an appointment with an opthomologist. A person with diabetes should have their eyes checked and dilated by an opthomologist (not an optometrist) at least once a year. Your vision changes could be from the Lyrica or the diabetes. I take Lyrica and have my eyes checked every year. This year I was having issues with blurred vision and my prescription needed to be changed. Hope this helps.
My wife is a diabetic go to and eye specialist and have them check the blood vessels in you eyes, she had the same issue and her blood vessels in her eyes where weaken and it required several surgeries, your a diabetic. It required laser surgery and it improved her eyes. Do not assume it is the Lyrica have your eyes checked, she did not use Lyrica but was using a different medication. God Bless
