Dang, I'm jealous. I wish my eyes had gotten better when my BG came down. Maybe if I had been diagnosed when I was a kid I could have prevented my eyes from getting progressively worse ever year.

According to my doc lower BG won't help mine. He says my eyes are misshapen. He also said that when my BG was so high that the reason my vision improved was the fluids in my eyes basically turned into a simple syrup, thickening everything which moved the focal point of my eye close to normal. Once I got my BG under control my vision returned to normal. 20/15 with my glasses. So I can't complain.
