Blurred Vision on one side

Alright. Here it goes: ... I have always had good eyesight. Very clear and I got checked way back and its always been good. No eye problems at all. But lately (since I have been straining my eyes a lot) when doing studying and stuff I noticed that I get blurred vission in one eye unless I squint. Anyways ... Its not that blurry ... Its just like if I cover one eye (the good one) the blurry one is hard to focus and I can only see clearly when I squint.

I am such a negative person and I have always had this fear of going blind and my mom told me thats just ridiculous to think that because I probly strained my eyes doing the school work OR if worse comes to worse I will need glasses. Ive made an appointment with my eye doctor for next week.

Do you think I should stop being such a worrier lol? I am driving myself crazy here.

Re: Blurred Vision on one side

Oh and just for the record, I never had any injuries to my eye annnd ... I am only 20 years old. Also ... I noticed I get these really horrible headaches in my eyes sometimes, like right between my nose and they last a very short time then go away. Maybe I suffer from cluster headches or migraines, I dont know.

Re: Blurred Vision on one side

Having good eyesight in your childhood is no guarantee that it will stay good. Personally, I don't think a lot of bookwork or computer work has anything to do with it.
You probably need glasses. At least you're having an eye exam, so you'll find out.

Actually environment factors such as bookwork and computer work does factor into developing nearsightedness. The OP's situation is example of it.

Re: Blurred Vision on one side

i know cause sometimes my mom experiences it too when she is doing crosswords and really focusing her eyes, Also ... do any of you find that when you cover one eye your other eye is focused but then goes blurry and unfocused like it crosses or something lol
