Film over eye?

For about the last year, my husband's vision has gotten worse and worse. He began wearing reading glasses and has increased the strength several times. With allergy season coming on, he has started rubbing his eyes alot, as he does every year. Today he said it was as if he rubbed away a film that was over his eye and says he can even sort of feel it pushed to the corner of his eye. The wierd thing is that he can see much better, and doesn't have to wear the glasses constantly. His eye is very watery, though. Any ideas?

Re: Film over eye?

When was his last eye exam? Has he been tested for cataracts? Constant rubbing of the eyes can result in more irritation even if it is allergies. He should also be tested to see if it is indeed allergies and get some relief.

Good luck...JJ...

Re: Film over eye?

Has his Dr. told him that he might be developing cataracts and that surgery might be a consideration? I have never heard of a cataract being rubbed away like that but it is strange that he sees better now. I would definitely suggest that he see his eye Dr. Please post what the results of the exam were and good luck!
