I had my thyroid removed 2 months ago and here recently i have noticed that my vision really fluctuates. I have a hard time focusing at times, blinking helps for a few minutes than vision off again. I wouldn't consider it a true blurring of vision but sometimes it takes alot of effort to focus things so they are sharp. I had my eyes examined and they are fine. Can synthroid cause this?
Well that makes sense. I had my levels checked over a wk ago and they were still high but the endo up'd the dose and i was told it could take up to a month before i start to notice any changes. I still feel like crap all around but this vision issue is kind of scary because i feel like i have to work twice as hard to focus on things. Thyroid problems truly suck dont they?
I had some vision issues after I had RAI for thyroid cancer. It took about 6 months or so, and then it suddenly got better on it's own. I had a low prescription, my eye tests were the same as before, I used my glasses a bit more for a while, and then I was fine.
I think in my case it was inflammation from the RAI---an eye doctor told me it can affect the tissue around the eyes.
