Blurred vision in one eye

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've had blurred vision in my left eye for about 8 months.

I've had 3 eye exams at Specsavers since then; all said my eye looks healthy.

I've been given a prescription which corrects the blurriness.

However, my left eye seems to produce less tears. On my first visit to Specsavers I was also told my left eye is dry, which may be causing the blurriness.

What could be causing this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Yes dry eye can caus blurred vision. See an opthomologist they know more then an optician.

    What was the prescription that you were given for blurriness? Blurriness by itself is a symptom.

    Definitely make appointment with an ophthalmologist . It could be chronic dry eye and can be treated with drops.

      My prescription is +0.25, -1.00, 90.

      I have been using drops on and off over the past 8 months. I'll definitely make an appointment like you suggested.
