Blurred vision, constant headache, but 20/20 vision and no opthamology problems

My 16 year old son has had headaches for 6 years (constant, not migraines which have beginnings and endings). He had surgery for a deviated septum and blocked s=inuses. That gave soime relief.

But recently the headaches became worse and for two weeks he has had blurred vision when he tries to read anything. Optomitrist exam showed 20/20 vision. Opthamologist exam showed no pressure problems, no cataracts, no glaucoma or other eye problem. He referred us to a neurologist but it will be weeks before the apppointment and he has exams soon.

He is also very tired and his eyes are sensitive to light.. He can see on the computer screen and distance fine. He was on tetracycline for acne but we stopped that more than 100 hours ago to see if it was a cause. It's life cycle is only 72 hours.

The doctor did hear a click in his heart (possible mitro valve problem) and he is scheduled to see a pediatric cardiologist next Wed.

What else could cause this and what can we do now to help him with his exams?
