I have seen the eye doctor twice this year, each time because my vision had blurred a little more. Now my eyes have blurred again and I am extremly worried about this. I do not have insurence as the company I work for does not offer it, and I cannot afford to continuly see an eye doctor like this. My vision has changed one to two clicks in each eye each time I visit the doctor. What can cause this? I have some problems with high blood pressure, but nothing serious and I have no other underlying health problems that I know of. My allergies have been acting up the past couple of weeks, but that is normal for this time of year for me. I drive for a living so this really concerns me. EEP!
changing vision can be of some concern, and is certainly frustrating on your end, but your eye doc has already most likely ruled out significant eye disease/etc.
how old are you? have you worn glasses or contacts before for a long time, or just recently?
most people have changing vision starting at around age 38. sometimes even earlier if they are hyperopic (far-sighted). sometimes it can be solved and sometimes you just have to let it change for awhile. if you have no eye disease process, then you may just have to wait it out. agreed it can be frustrating/worrysome and financially straining sometimes. ask your doc (if you have not already) if there is something he/she can do to stabilize your vision.
