I always had 20/20 vision! Fibro has affected my eyes also. Very blurry and need my reading glasses! Like I said fibromyalgia sucks ass. Not one thing good about it. It’s A lifetime sentence that’s for sure! Sending hugs and prayers to all! ❤️

My vision itself isn’t affected but I get very sensitive to light and spaces, sometimes feeling a little off kilter. This often happens in large spaces with bright lights - grocery stores are a prime example.

My twin brother (who has also developed fibromyalgia) and I have both noticed that our vision get blurrier than before we had fibro. We don't need glasses (at least not that I'm aware of) but my vision isn't as good as it was before. It's definitely a known symptom, I think it must be due to the constant tension causing strain (since people with fibromyalgia typically have 3x the muscle tension than a normal person, I wouldn't be surprised if that was also the case for our eyes).

It can very much be a Fibro thing.
My Family doc was concerned by the description of my symptoms I told her. Sent me to an eye doctor.
All good but for a weak left eye which I knew.
There are many symptoms of Fibro eyes.
And yes ,it can make getting a good prescription for glasses difficult. Blurring and dry eyes are two of the common symptoms. Trouble shifting focus. Issues while reading. sensitivity to light.
