Hi, Can dryness in eyes cause blurred vision or bad vision.

Resolved Question:

Hi,
Can dryness in eyes cause blurred vision or bad vision. I had lasik 10 years ago but my far vision sometimes gets worse. I do some exercises and eye drops and then it seems to get better. I'm really afraid of getting glasses so I don't go to get my eyes checked. Please advise.
Thanks

Dr. PG :

Yes

Dr. PG :

Dry eyes that are severe can certainly cause blurred vision

Dr. PG :

However refractive errors requiring correction are a more likely cause of the blurring

Dr. PG :

there are many options other than wearning spectacles in this situation - but not getting the vision is not a great idea :)

Dr. PG :

I would recommend a detailed ophthalmological examination for the same,
