Time for the Ophthalmologist

My daughter just had her 6 year old well visit today and during her vision test, she was 20/50 in her left eye and 20/25 in her right eye. She was fine last year. So I promptly made an appt with a pediatric ophthalmologist.Should I be worried? Neither my husband nor I wear contacts or glasses, and I have always had 20/20 vision. It makes me sick to my stomach to think this could be a result of T1D. Her A1C is 7.5. It's always been between 7.5 and 8.1 post-diagnosis on 2/13/12.Have any of you…See More
