    Does anyone have a lot of sensitivity to light? I am 57, diagnosed when I was 46, on insulin since 2010, on a pump since 2011, and cgm the last 16 mos. Last A1c was up a little, to 8.0. Two months ago I had a cataract removed, so I've been to an ophthamologist as recently as Dec. 1. I talked to the optha about this problem before, and since the procedure. His only suggestion was to get a tint in my glasses, which I did. Still a problem, which at times, during daylight, and in darkness, makes my eyes want to close, and roll up into my head. He said my retinas look good.

    Your situation sounds difficult and frustrating - can't even imagine what you are experiecing on a day to day basis. Perhaps it's time to seek a second opinion from another professional. Have you tried lowering your A1C to see if that helps?

    May be out of left field, but I wonder if your sensitivity to light could be because your pupil isn't closing enough when there is brightness. Normally ythemuscles in your eyes open and close your pupils to let in the right amount of light, based on how bright it is -- that is why when you walk into a dark room, you cannot see anything at first, but then after a little bit you can see more--your pupils have opened more. Or why wneh yo walk out into bright sunlight the same thing, in reverse, can happen.
    This might be something to ask your doctor about... If they don't need to dilate your eye to examine your retina, then I might be onto something here, though thatr might be an extreme example. Normally the eye drops they give you to dilate your eyes for an exam relax the muscles that control the pupils, thus opening them more and making your retina and the rest of the insid of your eye mroe visible...
