I would check with your eye doctor and your primary care physician. If you see stars often, I would check your sugar and see how much of a pattern there is when it happens.

My first inclination would to call my primary physician and/or optometrist.

Keep in touch, linda

Good morning everyone! I am hoping someone can offer some information or advice. I am sitting at my desk at work. Just finished eating my cheerios, non-fat milk and half a peach for breakfast when I started seeing stars. The seeing stars thing isn't new to me but I figured I would check my blood sugar to see if there is any correlation and it was 290! I am a newly diagnosed diabetic (about a month ago) but my sugars have been consistently under 200 since I started my metformin, diet and exercise routine. Every once in a while I wuold get a 225 reading but that would be the morning after having something bad like a cookie the night before.

Can anyone tell me anything about this? Does or has anyone else experienced this with diabetes? I have been seeing stars for a few years now but never really thought anything of it because there is a history of fainting in my family even though I have never fainted from it before.

Help please!
