Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
I suspect that you had a viral conjunctivitis, what many people commonly refer to as 'pink eye'. Most people who get this have a spontaneous and normal resolution without visual sequelae. However, occasionally, there is significant enough inflammation in the conjunctiva that the inflammation spills over into the cornea. This inflammation, called keratitis, can cause the vision to be fuzzy, even after the redness, pain, and light sensitivity go away.
For this reason, I would recommend going to see an ophthalmologist who can make verify this diagnosis (or another one if something else is going on) and who can prescribe the appropriate steroid drops to help this inflammation.
Does this make sense? Does this information help address your concerns?

I suspected viral pinkeye, but hadn't seen anything online about the clouding of vision.
Would this clear up in a few days without the steroid drops? I'd hate to spend a day going to the doctor, getting the drops, etc., if this is likely to resolve itself in a few days.
It's certainly possible, yes. I would say that it's reasonable to give it a couple of days and if it hasn't resolved or is worsening, then a trip to the ophthalmologist's office would be a good plan.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX Will see if ophthalmologist can see me in the next few days. But having you coinfirm my suspicions was very helpful.
