    Dry eye blurred vision

    Curious to know if others with dry eyes also have blurred vision in one of the eyes upon waking in the morning. I have this problem and it takes about 2 hours to subside, or continue off and on during the day.

    When I have blurred vision in the outer area of the eye, it feels like the eye socket is very full and uncomfortable. The other eye will be just fine, not really aware of the presence of eye in the socket. Pressure in the eye is normal when doctor has checked.

    I have mentioned it to the doctor off and on and he only says it is the nature of dry eye disease. It is the right eye that gives me the most trouble with blurred vision. I had Bells Palsy in 1965 on the right side of my face. Not sure if this has any relation to the full socket feel or not.

    In general when dry eyes bother me it is the surface of the eyeball, not the entire socket. Not sure what else it could be.

    Re: Dry eye blurred vision

    Misty800 - this sounds uncomfortably familiar. I have had a similar problem, but once I hit My mid 50's, I started actually tearing the cornea when I would open my eye in the morning. Before bed, I use an eye drop called "Muro 128" which has helped a lot.

    I recently visited the Wills Eye Institute in Philadelphia and was told that I have an erosion of my corneas. Basically, my coreneas are a little loose and "ripple" at a microscopic level. This can be corrected with a lazer surgery called PTK. I am scheduled to have this done at the end of summer.

    Your profile does not show your location, but I know of another doctor in Denver (Dr. Reed Bro) who also does this kind of procedure.

    Good luck,
