I am doubtful that the drops could still be affecting you unless it was atropine. You may have developed dry irritated eyes after the exam and it just set you back a few days and you haven't been able to get back to your normal self. You could have even gotten a small corneal abrasion during or after the exam. Remember the drops have a certian half-life. You may be sensitive. It's like you saying you took a benadryl 10 days ago and still feel it's effect. You know the drug is out of your system in a day or so. SO it's time to start looking in another direction. The drops may have set the stage - but there has to be another problem working here.
Yes, I understand what you are saying, but just as any drug can cause different reactions in different people, (like an antibiotic can cause an allergic reaction), I feel the drops caused this to happen. I was fine before the exam and not afterward. Maybe I (we--the previous posts and I) were predisposed to be farsighted and had a weak muscle or something--what ever causes farsightedness--and this medication relaxed it as it was suppose to but because of the predisposition it never went back to its original strength. But I must say, I certainly hope you are right and I will be able to see normal again soon. It has been very difficult seeing my periodontal probe markings this past week, and I just started my career as a hygienist and expected many many more years.
Sounds like you have presbyopia - possibly some hyperopia as well.
I am having the same problem as well. I went to an eye doctor last week. First he put some eye drops in that had about a 2 hour effect on me. But he said to make my prescription exact I'll have to come back again after work next week so he'd put some different drops in to relax my eye muscles.
So now it's 2 days after the second exam, and originally everything was blurry close-up, but after the first night (he said it would wear off after 1 night) everything in the distance is blurry. Today it's just as bad as it was yesterday, very blurry. And my eyes barely need any correction, I've never had glasses or contacts before, so I am kinda freaking out about why is everything blurry now?!? Should I give it another day or 2 before panicing?
