Yesterday I picked up my book to start to read and I couldn't not understand what I was reading!  It was very difficult. I read and re-read, but got little out of it. Also my vision was a bit blurred. Apart from the frustration of this, I felt fine.   When I came away from the book I felt normal, no other signs of trouble at all.  Since then, I have been fine. I have not contacted the doctor yet but will do shortly. My speech is fine, my thinking seems fine, everything except that.  Any ideas whether this might be a mini stroke (ischemic attack)?  I was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 1 in 2019, and I am 69 years old. I have not had this symptom before.

How are you doing?  I was just wanting more information myself on diabetes and eye sight.  Did you see your doctor about this?

I'm super sorry no one has responded to you!  Did this happen again or was it indeed a one off thing? I hate to say this, but I have had that issue when I had actual issues with my vision changing.  Let me know an update and we'll chat.

I did want to say that it can be due to a blood sugar spike as well.  Let me know if this has happened again. https://www.webmd.com/diabetes/diabetes-eye-problems
