Now we know what's wrong
Went to the eye surgeon today. He poked and prodded and asked questions. I told him about the passing out and coming to with the double vision.
A bunch of drops in my eyes later, he tested the tracking and fired his phasers in my eyes. Damn that was bright!!!
He said there's no retinal damage associated with diabetes. But what he did say was the same thing the mysterious doctor in the hospital said. There's a small clot blocking the vein supplying blood to the nerve that controls the tracking of my eyes. It's big enough to throttle the flow but not enough to stop it. At freaking last a confirmation of what's wrong.
He asked me if I was on any blood thinners and I told him about the shot in the stomach in the hospital. He wants me to start on a low dose (81mg) and see if that resolves the flow problem.
I'm down with that. Stopped at the drug store and scored a year's supply of the little goodies.
So it's off to bed to sleep off the drops in my eyes. Finally some good news. And yeah it was a bit of a chore to type this since most of the screen is a blur. But I thought ya'll might be interested in some good news.
