I just got back from the optometrist. He said that my vision is improving for one of two reasons: I might be developing cataracts, or – more likely – my blood sugar is elevated because of “rebound diabetes” that happens when a person quits drinking; your blood sugar drops for a few months then elevates again for some unknown reason.
He wants me to wear distance glasses IF I get a blood sugar test done and it comes back normal. Other than that, he doesn’t want me driving at night without glasses.
This sucks. I don’t want to wear glasses to see distances, and I don’t like the idea of elevated blood sugar or cataracts.
Could be worse, I suppose. I could be going blind. Thank God I’m not.
