Hello doctor,

I have been having blurry vision ever since my sore eyes have been going away. It started a week ago when I was diagnosed with sore eyes. My physician told me to use Terramycin four to five times a day and on the sixth day, the swelling in my eyes got better. But once my eye was in a "usable" state, I could open it fully with no pain or itching. I noticed a sudden change in my vision. It is now blurred. I just got my new pair of glasses three weeks ago so I am surprised why my vision got worse immediately. Is this a temporary aftereffect of the sore eyes or am I facing an eye infection which involves permanently reducing vision?

The symptoms I have been experiencing last week were as follows: Itchy eyes, swelling eyelids, I cannot open my eyes to its full extent, frequent pain in the eye, sometimes tear droplets rushing down my face, and when I wake up in the morning, it is like the liquid hardens and sticky things prevent my eye from opening but not that hard. Now, all the symptoms have gone except the sudden blurry vision. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This blurred vision could be due to viral keratoconjunctivitis which means there is a possibility of involvement of cornea leading to blurred vision.

Treatment usually includes soft steroid eyedrop like fluorometholone in slow tapering doses.

It is a provisional diagnosis.

Kindly consult an ophthalmologist and get proper eye examination done.
