Restasis - change in vision

I've had difficulty with intermittent blurred vision for over a year. All neurological tests have been negative.  Two months ago, my eye doctor changed my prescription slightly, and also suggested I try Restasis to see if maybe my eyes were just dry. I haven't noticed much of a change. I went today for a recheck.  I read the eye chart with my right eye and did OK, but I could barely see the top line with my left eye. I was very shocked, as this has never happened before. The doctor ran several tests, but couldn't find anything definitely wrong with the left eye.  He told me to stop the Restasis since it might be causing the change, and he'll check me again in one month.  I find it hard to believe that Restasis would be causing this, since the change is in one eye only.  I'm wondering if anyone has had this experience with Restasis?  Thank you.

I have not seen this in my Restasis patients.
