Diabetiese koma en oê 

My dogter was in n dieabetiese koma en was vir 4 dae uit. sy het wonderbaarlik herstel maar nou is haar bril nie meer sterk genoeg nie. Sy kan nou nie meer so goed sien nie. Nou wil ons net weet of dit weer gaan regkom of het sy skade opgedoen van die koma waarin sy was. Sy het geen ander skade, sover die dokter kan sien, opgedoen nie.Sy het 2dae terug eers wakker geword.

Dear PW
It isn’t clear to me what the problem with the vision is, i.e can she not see as far as before(short-sighted), or whether she can’t see near things(near-sighted), or whether parts of her vision are missing. Certainly if her glucose levels were high for a while before the coma, then when they are lowered a patient’s vision can change in that they may need there glasses changed or can develop cataracts. I would suggest an opinion from an ophthalmologist to get a good assessment.
