Vision Issues

Vision Issues

I have seen existing posts about vision issues that come about from having Fibro.

Does anyone have suggestions to minimize blurry vision?

My experience is like moments of vision loss and/or blurriness.

The Effects of Fibromyalgia on Eyes
BY BARBARA A. SMITH • AUG. 14, 2017
Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that causes chronic physical and mental problems including pain, fatigue and psychological distress. According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, symptoms also include sleep disturbances, headaches, skin sensitivities, dry eyes, dizziness, impaired coordination and vision problems. The effects of fibromyalgia on the eyes impact abilities to perform daily activities such as driving, especially at night, and detailed work such as sewing since the disorder can cause double or blurred vision.

Try some warm compressions on your eyes! Don’t sit staring at the tv or a computer too long! Avoid dry areas like beaches/ air con units etc anything that’s going to exacerbate the situation. Boots do a good range of eye drops for lubricating your eyes!
Always check your eye test is up to date

The symptoms can include blurred vision, double vision (diplopia), optic neuritis, involuntary rapid eye movement and occasionally, a total loss of sight. Problems with vision can result from damage to the optic nerve or from a lack of coordination in the eye muscles. The optic nerve connects the eye to the brain.

I use allergy eye drops or liquid tears. It seems to help the blurriness for awhile. I have 20/20 vision but use readers. Lately my eyes are blurry alot. I feel blind when i take my readers off after wearing them for a hour or so.
