I have that from time to time. I have vision checked every year... A diabetic screening done. The diabetes have not affected my vision. It is important to get your vision checked.

I had a similar eye problem 10 yrs ago. I actually did lose Some of my sight due to diabetes

I had that and it was a hemorrhage in my eye. I ended up needing surgery. It's diabetic retinopathy

I tend to have that sometimes also. I have been noticing it more when my sugars are high and towards the end of the day. It is very important to have your eyes checked every year and in between if you are having problems.

Good luck! I have diabetes induced cataracts and a little fluid behind my right eye. Am hoping by getting my sugars under better control will either help or reverse them.

It could be a floater and may not be too serious but like the others go to the eye doctor!
