Had Lysik surgery several years ago on my right eye ... vision is getting blurry ... Zocor bumped up to 40 mg in April, blurry vision started around a couple of weeks later.

Welcome to Just Answer:

In general, Zocor is not known to cause significant eye side effects, except that it can lead to the break down of muscle cells resulting in fatigue and/or muscle soreness. So, it is possible that with increased dose of Zocor that the eye muscle is fatigued with more difficulty focusing. However, it would be necessary to closely evaluate the cornea (with Silt-lamp, and Pachymetry) by your eye doctor to exclude any defect or regrowth of cornea tissue that LASIK enhancement may be needed to correct.
