Hi. I have posted about this before, but just wanted to see if I can get some more advice/input from others. Upon awakening in the mornings, my left eye is blurred,(as it is right now), which usually lasts for 2-3 hours. Every now & then, it will be my right eye or maybe both, but 95% of the time it is only my left eye and only in the mornings.. http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gif Also, it doesn't happen EVERY moring- no pattern. It's getting extremely aggravating as any eye DR. I have been to has not found anything. They did say it looks as if it's dry eyes. I have used ointments, drops, etc. Nothing seems to work. I thought the eyedrops, "TheraTears", had cleared it, but the blurriness has come back (maybe due to me quit using it)??? This all started happening about the same time I 'developed allergies', after having my first child (9 yrs. ago).... At the age of 23, I became allergic to animals!! Very odd, but the allergist says this does happen. I'm not sure if all of this somehow ties in together. Thanks for any help!
Hi. Thanks for responding. You're probably right in that it does seem like it would be 'dry eyes', since the TheraTears did work at one time. I have started using them again, so I'll see what happens. The only thing that worries me, are articles I read about various things it "could be".. Such as: Fuchs' Dystrophy. Has anyone heard of this? It says it's more common in women, & at first, a person will 'awken with blurred vision that gradually clears during the day'...exactly like me...I have also read about "cornea edema". I think I'm just more worried about the long term effects if I can't clear this up. Hopefully, the 4 different eye Dr's have diagnosed me right! They all could not see anything when my eyes were NOT blurry. I had to go back in while my eyes were doing it, then they said the eye looked scratched--common with dry eyes...Would like to hear if anyone knows about the above I mentioned. Take care.
I've been wondering if 'ibruprophen' could be the culprit...
I'm experiencing the same symptoms in my right eye. It almost seems like a film but I can't wash it away, or like my depth of vision is changing. Without glasses I can only see clearly about 10" from my face. Nothing seems to trigger the blurriness, it just shows up for maybe a few hours and then goes away. It's not daily but it has been reoccurring more often lately. So, here I am.
I'll be 44 this year. I stopped wearing contact lenses when the contact wouldn't sit correctly on the eye (and that really disappointed my hubby). My eye doctor says it's probably allergies. I think I should see a specialist.
I started taking this combination about a week ago and I have noticed repeated results within a couple of hours:
(Post and let us know if this helps you too!)
I bought a 'Perfect Eyes' formula by Nature's Sunshine when I saw how much the 'Eye Bright' herb cost. I'm also taking 40mg more of Bilberry Extract and 10,000 IU of Vitamin A, and eating bananas (for the potassium) almost daily. I also take a daily vitamin (almost daily) and Lite Bites (with relaxing herbs) 'Fruit-' and 'Vegi-' Essentials whenever I feel I need them. I'm not on any regular prescriptions. I've been taking ibruprophen kinda regularly, but not everyday like I was, because of five fractures in my lower back I got in a car accident. I have even been skipping through a week or two without any pain meds, as I do without the herbs too, until now. Also, I just spent almost 3 days during my last menstration eating 400-800mg of ibruprophen every 4-6 hours.
My herb/vitamin/natural food combinations research started in the '80's when I first fought a pre-cancerous condition. The surgeon got it all on the third try!
NOTE: Research proves that these "combinations" are stronger when you add as many of the separate items to make a formula that aids in the highest healing properties of a particular ailment.
Besides the various combinations I've been taking whenever I need them, I've been eating something green almost daily ever since the 'cancer surgeries'. I still think I'll be making a call to see a specialist soon! More and more doctors are learning about these healthier combinations!
I know that this is a very old thread, but I found it during one of my google searches and wondered if you had ever found a cause for the blurry-vision-in-one-eye-when-waking-up problem??
I ask because I have exactly the same problem. My right eye is blurry some mornings and has been for months - sometimes only mildly blurry othertimes very blurred. At the hospital this week they found nothing wrong. Like you - the only thing I found on the internet relating to this morning blur is to do with corneal edema and corneal dystrophies.
HI. No, I have never got rid of the blurred vision, believe it or not. Here it is 4 years later after that post and I've found nothing that helps. It's usually always my left eye now, 95% of the time, but those few times my left eye isn't blurry then my right eye is. It's very odd. I've not used the Thera Tears eyedrops like I should. The only time they seemed to work was when I used them faithfully 4 times a day then an eye gel or ointment when I went to bed. After about 2 weeks or so, the blurriness went away and stayed away, but a couple of months later after quitting the TheraTears, it came back. I tend to use the drops maybe once a day or twice and not continuous. You really have to use them 4 times a day without skipping and that seems to work. If you, or anyone else has a cure, PLEASE let me know. Take care.
