I have had allergies all my life I am now 57 years old., I take zyrtec and singulair on a daily basis. During different times of the year my eyes would itch or get red, I would use Optivar or Pantonel and it was fine.
This past August 2008., I started having blurred and distorted vision., I immediately made an appointment with a opthamologist, he did every test imaginable and they were all fine, he suggested I go to my primary care physician., he thought it possible could be allergies., but wanted the primary care doctor to examine me. I went to my primary care physician., he sent me for MRI of the brain., everything was fine, at this point I was very happy it was not nothing serious like a brain tumor., but yet i wanted to know what was going on as it was worsening, and made it difficult to drive , he gave me some cortisone eye drops hoping this would help., it did not, neither did the eye drops of optivar, but., we tried a medrol pack and that helped the eyes., needless to say I can not take medrol everyday., after a few weeks of being off the medrol, the symptoms all returned. My eyes I rinse out with refresh drops to try to clear out any allergens., and there is mucous in my eyes sometimes., but the blurred vision and distorted vision is back with a vengence., I have another appointment with the opthamologist., hopeing we can try some other eye drops., please anyone ever have this problem., I am at a loss., but I know I must find something to correct this. I have always had excellent vision. I have been going over and over in my mind if anything new came into my life in august 2008, but nothing..........
Thanks., any suggestions would be appreciated.
