I wear glasses and contacts, however I wear glasses 95% of the time. The issue occurs with both glasses and contacts.
There is no redness or watering, nor any intolerance to bright light.
The blurring of the right eye is constant. It started last Saturday morning as I woke up, and was pretty bad, but very gradually improved over the next few day (although not perfectly).
Then, yesterday evening, it got really bad again, to the point where I couldn't stand looking at the computer anymore. It also started getting a slight pain about 2 days ago, and has been increasing. It is a slight stinging pain, and annoying, but not super painful.
I have also noticed that I have been closing it throughout the day because it hurts and is hard to see from...
I am getting quite scared now.
My optomotrist did a fairly thorough examination, but I was surprised when he said my eyes were fine and that it could be due to a number of things. He mentioned a few things that could have caused the bluriness, but didn't seem worried or concerned that it was an issue at all, but this is starting to get unberable now..
Thank you. That does help, but I'd just like to continue this conversation a little further.
I work from my computer for a living, and recently I've been putting a lot more hours in, so eye strain from the computer was always a likely culprit in the back of my mind. I also sleep with a fan on, but my eyes are closed while sleeping obviously...
Is it normal for "dry eyes" to only affect one eye? Because it's only my right eye with the issue; my left one is fine. Also, bluriness is pretty much 24/7 in the eye, although to various degrees of bluriness.
I did splash some water mist near my eye which seems to aid somewhat, so dry eyes could indeed be the issue, although I've never had dry eyes before.
Also, my right eye doesn't really appear to be dry. It doesn't really feel dry or look dry - is that normal?
Lastly, with artificial tears, how fast does pain relief usually come, and clarity return?
Also, should I use them in both eyes, or just in the affected eye?
