What else do you need to know before you can answer my question?
Does the blurriness occur at the same time as the other symptoms, or on it's own? Are both eyes affected at the same time? Any eye pain?

Blurriness is constant in both eyes, there is some burning with discharge frequently, the headache is usually present and then there is the frequent falls, 18 in one year.

with the associated symptoms my first thought would be a vascular problem, although SLE could also be causing your issues.

I think you should have a complete exam by an neurologist. Also, an optometrist doesn't have enough training to evaluate you for any associated eye findings. For this you should be seen by an ophthalmologist.

Does this make sense to you?
