In the past 4 weeks i've developed blurry vision in my right eye. Its very troubling because nothing seems to be helping. I've had a history of sinus problems, but my vision has always been healthy. I went to an opthamologist who said my eye was healthy, possibly some allergy bumps, but nothing serious. My vision in my right eye is consistently deteriorating and I'm worried it may be something neurological.

I see fine up close, but can barely read street signs with my right eye from afar. I have headaches on the right said of my head now and it feels like something is just in my eye. If anyone knows what this could be, or if I should be worried, I'd appreciate your advice.

Hi,

Yes, I do suffer from chronic sinus problems. The headaches did not come before the eye bluriness. The bluriness is pervasive, I have it in the morning when I wake up and when I go to sleep. It doesnt really hurt when I touch through my eyelids, but it is a little tender. I went to an opthamologist and he said that I do have some allergy bumps around the eye, but the eye structure seemed fine. He prescribed a topical steroid, which hasnt made any improvement. The bluriness is severe in my right eye, but my left eye vision is good. I think the headaches come from the lack of quality of vision in my right versus my left eye.

It feels like something is in my eye sometimes, and there is some pain. I've had problems with my sinuses for the last 5 years, but never blurry vision until these last few months. My vision up close in both eyes is fine, but my vision in my right is completely blurry beyond 5 feet.

Thank you for any help or advice you can provide.

Are you experiencing nausea or vomiting?
Do you see haloes around lights?
Is the blurring of your vision intermittent?

The blurry vision is constant. It seems stongest in the morning and during the day, and a little better at night. Again, it's only in my right eye, my left eye vision is fine. I have no nausea or vomitting and don't see any halos etc. I had an eye exam and my vision in my left eye is 20/15 and right eye was 20/40.

Do you have blind spots in your central or peripheral vision?
Have you noticed some loss of color vision, too?

Hi.. I am 34 now and recently experiencing all exact symptoms you mentioned and what PBchami user was describing. I see this post is hijacked in the middle and I am curious to know what is causing this blurry vision in one eye (right eye) and how to get through this. Its already two weeks I am this way and unfortunately my doctor is on vacation. Can you please share some details. Thanks

Me too!!
I have been having problems with this as well for a very very long time not... I lose my periphial vision mostly just on the right side it comes and goes, I was seen by a doctor and I am hypoglycemic so they blamed it on that, but sugar never seems to correct the problem. it just seems like it's getting worse and worse, and when I am driving with my children in the car I have to pull over and let it pass which can take up to an hour, if I am calm it seems quicker if I freak out over it it has been known to last two hours. HELP Please

Hey skk2905, your problem is different from the one pbchami is talking about. MandMs seems to ask the correct questions. I have the same symptoms. Blind sopt in the central or blurry vision on the central, loss of color, sinus problem, slight headache on the right side...

has this problem been solved? any idea what might be causing this?

Blurred Vision getting worse
I have had blurred vision from time to time. This started in my late teens, early twenties but is now (the past few days) only getting worse. In the past it would happen every six months or so but the past two days has happened four to five times a day. It starts out as a small halo-ish pulsating blurr in the center on my line of sight. It then slowly expands outward increasing in size and taking the shape of a crescent. It then disappears as it rounds its way outward eventually disappearing from periferal vision. This is usually a 15-45 minute cycle every 2-3 hours. I believe it's coming from my left eye as the outer edge of my eye is red. It has been this way sporatically since my early twenties also. Last night I had my wife look at my eye closely to see any obvious abnormalities... we found the spot that's red seems to have no reflection from light... i.e.. the rest of the eye is glossy but this area seems to have lost that 'glossy coating'...and the past few days I've had terrible migrane headaches in conjunciton with my current symptoms.
Can anyone relate or lead me in the right direction?


I apologize I seem to have posted on someone else's thread... wasnt my intention...

con't.
me too guys. right eye only, intermittent blurring with loss of peripheral vision, blind spot or giant floater in center (not sure), increasing pressure behind my right eye throughout the day which leads to a killer right-side-only headache. i have other health issues but this doesn't seem to fit. my doc kinda blew me off and mentioned it was probably trigeminal neuropathy but i don't think so. i'm going to see an eye doctor.

Herpes of the eye seems to be a possible reason, per other sites?

can anyone help/ right eye blurriness
i fell asleep the other day for a few hours and when i woke up my right eye was blurry...i was recently prescribed contacts but really dont need them unless i drive at night... so i might wear them once or twice a week for 2 or 3 hours at a time... the vision in the right eye has been blurry for about 2 weeks, no matter if i am up close or far away from something it stays the same blurriness...there is a constant pressure in the eye area along with skin or muscle numbness in the cheek and temple area...when i blink i can see a dark shape that appears and disappears as though i had looked at a light bulb for to long...but can only see it when i blink then its gone....it started out with only seeing very blurry outlines of things and people i was looking at... at night time i can see dim lights on cars but cant see the vehicle at all no matter how close i get behind them.... its like there is a dark window tint over my eye that i cant see through....if anyone knows what could be causing this please email me

Hi tanktrx and welcome to ehealth: I think you should contact the doctor who prescribed the contacts...Having worn contacts myself, I know for a fact that they can be difficult getting used to at night...I question if there may be something wrong with the contact that fits into the eye in question...Possibly some scratching..Please check it out as it is always possible that some damage could be done to the eye itself...If it was me I would stop wearing them until I checked this out...Take care...

i dont think it would be the contacts since i rarely wear them...yes the problem started after i was prescribed contacts but i hadnt worn them in days when i started having this problem...im not an eye physician by no means but i did some research online and most of the symptoms relates to what they say could be a blood clot behind the retina causing the sudden blurry symptoms so ill be making an appointment asap since that could lead to a stroke or heart attack if not taken care of....

Hi again: Then I will go another way...I don't know your age, but spots and blur also can be a sign of Macular Degeneration...Have it checked out as my husband had this problem years ago...They had to do laser surgery or he could have gone blind in one eye...I still question the contact as a possiblility of a scratch or injury occurred in the early stage of your wearing them...Do have this checked out and please keep us advised....Take care...

Hi there,
For the past few days I've being having the same sypmtoms though not as bad. My long sited vision in my right eye is quit blurry and I havn't noticed a change in the time of day. I have never had glasses or contact lenses and had perfect vision before this. Im only 15 so that rules out it being age. I was wondering if their was any develope in finding out what was happening with your eye?
