I have an ongoing problem that no-one has offered me any answers to yet.

I wear glasses as my vision is impaired, my left eye is almost perfect but my right eye is way off and I am right eye dominant.

My glasses even everything out ok so my vision is great when I am wearing them, they are for driving and that kind of stuff although I cant wear them walking about as they upset my balance.

My problem is that without glasses I can read a UK type vehicle reg plate at 20 feet, with my right eye covered and using the left eye the numbers will be crystal clear, reversing the test and read with my right eye I can make out the letter shapes although they are very fuzzy. If I have something sugary like a coffee with sugar or biscuits or anything with hidden natural sugar my right eye goes real blurry, those letters that were fuzzy but make-able now are completely unreadable all is can see is a blurry background with a blurry black shape on it,(I am using the number plate as an example), but its the same with any kind of detailing, after sugar even teletext on a 50 inch tv at 10 feet is impossible.

I can tell when my vision is gonna go and I have noticed a kind of pressure in the eye recently. I obviously stay away from sugar as much as possible, I use artificial sweetener all the time but its the hidden sugars in every day foods that do me no good.

I have had a deep diabetes test and glucose intolerance tests which both came back clear.

I cannot understand why its just my right eye thats affected and not my left (which is always clear).

If any one has any suggestions as it starting to get me down as its so annoying.
