Hello, I have conjuctivitis over two months. The vision in one eye  is  low compared to the other. I did all tests and they are normal. Does conjuctivitis cause long-term blurred vision?

I will be happy for feedback who had the similar problems.

    Hi Elen,

    I don't think conjunctivitis ordinarily causes long term blurred vision. I would definitely suggest that you see an opthamologist to get this checked over. Hopefully it is something that can be treated.

    All the best x

      Hello Cara, I did all the tests and they were not able to find the cause. I have seen 4 opthamologists.  I have dry eyes aslo. I really do not know what is the cause of blurred vision.

      I have dry eyes too it's no fun is it. Is the blurred vision very bad? Perhaps it's something that can be corrected with lenses (contacts or glasses)? What I have found with the opthamologists is that, unless it's something that is threatening your sight, they don't seem to be very helpful or forthcoming with solutions. There doesn't seem to be any recognition of the fact that eye/vision problems can really interfere with a person's quality of life. I myself have flashing lights and floaters in my vision and have been told that I will "get used to it".

      I hope you get to the bottom of it. Eye problems cause a lot of anxiety don't they x

      i have been tp doctors with no vision complaint but for blepharitis, conjuctivits and dry eyes. During examionation they told me that I have a vision problem  which cannot be corrected with glasses. With glasses the left eye is 70/100 and right is 100/100.

      It's strange that they can't tell you what's causing the problem. Have you seen anyone at a specialist eye hospital? I'm not sure where you're located and, therefore, what your options are but I would definitely want to have it looked at again.

      I'm sorry I can't be more help. Hopefully someone else might be able to shed some light on this for you. If you have had your eyes checked thoroughly many times and they can't find anything to explain it, perhaps some thing like the treatment for blepharitis/dry eye might need revisiting as this could be related? Maybe a different type of eye drop might help. Just a thought.
