Birth control and eye problems

I started taking YAS about a month ago and I recently started to have vision problems. It started off as pain behind my eye and escalated to a blurry spot in my left eye. I recently saw two eye doctors who can't find any problems. They told me it was due to my birth control and I should stop taking them. Is anyone else having this problem? It's starting to freak me out.

Re: Birth control and eye problems

I really have dry eyes now ever since I got on the pill. Never EVER had this problem before...Last time i was at my eye doctor, i told him about this and he immeditately asked if i was on BC and i said yes and he said the pill can really affect your eyes...weird huh? Also i have glasses and have been to many eye doctors...and just a few years ago they find a mole by my optic nerve that they never found the whole time ive been to eye doctors...strange...possibly something from the pill? we dont know... Quite possibly you are experiencing something from the pill ...I wouldn't be surprised. I was never told to stop taking mine but if your eyes are bothering you this bad you might wanna try it and see what happens.
It never hurts to smile :-D
