It happened to me too. I went from a -3.25 to a -2.25. Sometimes I forget that I don’t have my glasses on. My optometrist was not particularly surprised and said it ‘sometimes’ happens that way and I am just ‘lucky’. I think not. I think I have been keto for almost 10 years and luck has nothing to do with it.
It’s getting better again. I was just at the supermarket and could read the small print ingredients really easily. I was having to take photos and zoom in or get my daughter to read for the last year. So happy
I’m 68 and recently went to have my eyes tested as my multi-focal prescription wasn’t working anymore, to the extent I could read clearer without my glasses than with then - I had also been diagnosed with burst blood vessels on the back of one of my retinas, a result of my T2D. So the blurry patch that I noticed that indicated that retina problem has disappeared, and my opthamologist told me that I could now legally drive without my glasses - I got my licence on my 17th birthday needing glasses. So I’m a very happy chappy.
I am 54 and so far I just use the Dollar store reading glasses, for any reading, including the computer. If mine improve maybe that is all I will ever need, or even not need them, that would be awesome.
Any experience in how IF, Keto and autophagy in regards to diabetic retinopathy?
Keto for 1 year now. I was prescribed corrective lens about 15 years ago and have been wearing them. My vision has improved since keto, I no longer need glasses. My ophthalmologist said that I have some early stage indications of diabetic retinopathy, but not of concern at this point. I passed 20/20 vision exam. I don’t need glasses anymore. I am hopeful that Keto will help reverse the damage to my eyes. It certainly is helping from further progression of the retinopathy.
Good job! I still need my glasses, but no longer have signs of macular degeneration! While Keto doesn’t heal everything, it definitely helps with some issues!
Still need reading glasses, but my far vision has improved with low/no carb…
Update. My vision is still improving since Keto. I continue to see better, especially my near vision seems to be better. I can read a lot of small print, close up, better than before. Undoubtedly it is lower blood sugar, but perhaps it’s all in my head. I’ll consider it a win. KCKO.
P.S. I have misplaced my glasses about 1 year ago.
I haven’t had an eye test in 12 years. But I’m sure my vision is improving.
I had an annual eye exam yesterday with an ophthalmologist, (I have been off all of my type 2 diabetes medications for over 1-1/2 years) and was somewhat apprehensive… Last year I had a few dot blot hemorrhages from my past out of control blood sugar, but not of huge concern, and I still see 20/20 with a slight prescription.
The doctor said she sees no further progression of eye damage due to diabetes.
