Blurred vision and seeing spots.

Posted , 12 users are following.

Hi ladies. I'm 3 years into the menopause and I'm still experiencing blurry vision and it's happening every day. I also occasionally see spots when I look at somethings up close. I read that women only get blurred vision during the first few weeks of menopause. Is anyone else still experiencing these symptoms months or years later.

    Thanks ladies. I have so many other scary issues but it helps to know that I'm not the only one with blurred vision. However, none of you mentioned seeing spots so I guess that's a concern. Take care ladies and thanks again.

      I have eye floaters frequently. Every once in a while I see black spots or flashes of light in my peripheral vision. Also, I sometimes see stars when I turn my head too quickly. Recently went to the eye dr. All was well except for dry eyes. I use eye drops and take a ton of fish oil, per my docs orders. I told her it was menopause related, and she was kind enough to give me the name of a pharmacy her mom uses for compounded bhrt. I'm just working up the nerve to make and keep an appointment with a new gyn. ugh! Hope this helps!

    I started getting blurred vision around the menopause...saw my optician who recommended glasses for all phone/screen use, and that has solved the issue. I have prescription glasses but also use ready readers from Poundland, with the optician's blessing. I have lots of pairs everywhere and no more blurred vision. Make your optician your first port of call and take it from there, good luck.

    My vision is my most upsetting symptom. I have 24/7 blurry vision, after images, floaters, flashes, light sensitivity, and occassionally spots (glowing dots). It gives me anxiety. You are not alone. xo

    Hi Faz,

    The last 2 yrs my vision has changed drastically.. I went from a very mild prescription to needing bifocals and I just turned 51. Last year at my check up it was discovered I have lattace degeneration which is the retina looks like lattace work.. that causes me to see floaters, sparks, dead spots in my vision. Unfortunately for me there is no cure and if I see more than 5 floaters at a time I have to get to the eye doc asap bc its possible I have a rupture. Driving at night is a nightmare and I won't do it if I don't have to. I'm not saying this is your issue and definitely not trying to scare you but it's always good to have a thorough eye exam. They say they don't know why it happens but I found it funny that I started the meno journey and then this is found.. Fingers crossed yours is nothing more than dry eyes!
