Problems with blurred eyesight which comes and goes.

Posted , 6 users are following.

I'm new to this forum and hoping someone can help me. I am 70+ and have normal tension glaucoma plus small cataracts. Drops didn't bring the pressures down so in 2010 I had a trabeculectomy in both eyes. These ops plus Gingko Biloba and Lutein are keeping the pressures down and I have an annual check up at the hospital. I also use Viscotears to stop them getting dry. My right eye is worse than my left plus I also have a stigmatism in that eye. For 2 days this week my vision was very clear, sharper than it's been for days but I visited a National Trust property yesterday which was dark inside and when I came out my vision was slightly blurred. This also happens when I go out in bright light even when I wear sunglasses. Most of the time my eyes are fine and for a couple of days here and there excellent. Other days they soon become blurry although I'm still able to drive. Has anyone else experienced this and if so what could be the problem. It's not bad enough to go to the Doctors or the Eye Clinic.

    Are you not taking eye drops that could affect your sight?

    Often this condition could be caused by tiredness and a lack of proper sleep.

      I considered that but I don't think that's the cause. I wondered if anyone else had had the same problem. This morning they are fine again and yet I've been on the laptop most of the morning. It seems to be extremes of light, either quite dark like in old dark rooms or sunlight that makes it worse. Sunglasses don't seem to make any difference.

    With the age you have super eye condition. Sometimes with time eyes take time to adjust. You keep your drops in time. Cataract has only surgical cure. Your cataract may be on early stage.

    Thank you for your message. I have come to the conclusion that my eyes are better in daylight than they are in darkened scenarios, maybe because of the cataracts even though they are small. I am lucky to be able to see at all and think I am probably worrying over nothing.
