Have you seen an ophthalmalogist recently? This doesn't sound too familiar to me... other than I've noticed my pupils don't seem to work correctly all the time and this interferes with my photography sometimes. I also have dry eyes.
Maybe others here have had this experience but I would get to a doctor to have it checked out.
There is no age range for "old and decrepit" I guess but I do feel like the "standard" right now.
I did see an ophthalmologist in the Spring of 08 right around the time my kidney stones hit. I was already feeling like crap and the eyesight changes just added insult to injury at that point. I was told that it was just progressive changes attributed to "getting older and having an astigmatism in BOTH eyes" now. I can only liken it to using a pair of binoculars when both lenses haven't been dialed in yet. I read without glasses before bed and I find that it's just better to close the bad eye altogether.
Anyway, I raised the question because I read a few sites that mention blurred vision as a potential symptom of hypo and wondered if others had similar experiences.
My endo also mentioned her concern about my pituitary gland having connection with my low testosterone levels. That sent me to the web again and reading about pituitary tumors. Then I read about those types of tumors affecting eyesight!
I tell you, the Internet is dangerous when you are desperate to learn what's wrong. (I won't even go into my research on kidney stone removal techniques! Trust me, a guy should NEVER look that up before "going under" the knife
