I am on vacation in Australia. I observed that my eyes have gone blurry. I used to wear glasses, but had Lasik eye surgery 4 years ago. I used to be nearsighted and my "grade" of my eyeglasses were 350+.
In a span of one week or so, I've observed my eyesight has become drastically blurred. I have gotten headaches because of this. From what I could remember, it started one night I was outside and my eyes seemed to "fog up" (like what happens with car windows) but I just brushed the occurance aside.
I believe this is astigmatism. But I am hoping it can just be allergies and that my eyesight will go back to "normal" when I go home. But I just can't believe that my astigmatism came back and in such a short span of time! And I feel that it is getting blurrier by the day.
Can it be because UV rays are stronger in Australia? Or can climate cause eye blurriness? It is winter here now. And it is my first time to experience winter (normally 7-18 degrees everyday).
I know I should consult with a doctor, but I am trying to look for answers here first. thank you.
sir john. the grade of my eye is 400/450 and i feel that i feel that its getting higher. bt my doc. said that if i wear my eyeglasses everyday it will decrease, but then i feel its getting higher what should i do? im in the philippines. and im afraid to go to an opthalmologist.
