Hi,

I have recently noticed about a month ago that when I close my right eye I my vision become blurry the farther a way I look. It felt irritated and a little dry but looked fine in the mirror, not red at all. And since then it is only getting worse. It seems my vision is becoming increasingly near sighted. I went to an eye doctor and they ran a small battery of tests and told me my left eye looked perfect, but were surprised when I mentioned it was bothering me. Since then I went to a hospital and they again did not find anything. This week I noticed a decent size floater in the center of my vision that is big enough to distort my vision. Also by the end of the day everyday my eye feels tired and uncomfortable. Any ideas?

    Your age, associated diseases and medication are important.

      I'm 34, have had some autoimmune issues over the last 3 years and have been on several medicines treating the disease or side effects from the medicine. Unfortunately I don't know what to think.
