Blurred / Cloudy Vision

9 posts in this topic

New Question:

 

Yesterday and today my vision is cloudy and I have to blink and blink to get it clear. Does anyone else ever experience this?

 

Thanks.

Yes, I have had this a few times over the years with MCTD. It really is blurry and then it will go away like everything else. Be careful when you drive and if it doesn't' get better soon, go see your eye doctor. Susie54

Peggy,

I have had that happen, but have no idea what causes it. I think my eyes are pretty dry and maybe that could be the cause. Since it seldom happens, I haven't even asked the doctor about it.

Hi Peggy,

I echo what Mary in Texas said. Sometimes my eyes also look "glassy" even though they are burning from dryness. Other times one or both of them will be quite red. I figure it is inflamation. Maybe this is something to mention to the rheumatologist regardless of how quickly it might or might not go away.

Peggy,

I had this problem so I talked to my eye doctor. She recommended OTC artificial tears. I tried it and it works great as long as I remember to use it. :)

Ditto, but in my right eye. I just use an otc eye drops every morning, which the eye doctor is not too keen of.

Hi Peggy, I get this too, usually when I have been spending a long time in front of a computer screen. I used artificial tears , but have just started using a liposomal spray instead (you spray it onto closed eyelids) -its so much easier than drops.

Having said that - I think it is always wise to consult Dr re blurred vision, as can be more serious casues.

Thanks for the info. In talking with Denelle from Minnesota I never put 2 and 2 together that it would by Sjogren's and that my eyes must be alot drier than I am aware of. I know when I went to the dentist he could tell I had Sjogren's and scleroderma by looking at my teeth - so now I use artificial saliva too. It's just scary to all of a sudden haver your eyesight so dramatically affected.

 

Thanks to all who took the time to post! I really appreciate the info!

 

Warm wishes and hugs from Minnesota!

Peggy
