My vision is getting worse, with "strobe" type flashes along the edge of my vision and pain in my left eye. I'm a 63-year-old male with 125-130 glucose for last year when diagnosed as pre-diabetic. What should I do?

Eye pain, decreased vision and flashing lights all require a comprehensive eye examination as soon as possible. There are many serious possible causes of these symptoms.
