Couple of weeks back my eye went red and ever since I've blurry vision in one of my eye.I did consult an ophthalmologist, he says the eye looks healthy.He tried different eye lenses but I was still having hazy vision. What do you think should be my next step.
Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Have you been using any eye drops? Is the blurry vision at near, at distance or all fixation distances? Any eye pain, light sensitivity, tearing?

have not been using any eye drops.I'm having no pain, no sensitivity to light.. the blurry vision is for all distance, its most prominent for near distance.

Doctor DanB : Okay, given the fact that you don't have any pain or sensitivity to light, the chances of infection are less. However, redness and an acute onset of blurry vision associated with the redness indicate that there is likely some significant inflammation associated with this eye. I would've expected that the ophthalmologist would've picked up on any significant inflammation. That being said, it could be that the inflammation was early in its course and the signs were subtle. At any rate, because I think the chances are tht there is some significant inflammation causing your symptoms, I would recommend at least going back to your ophthalmologist for a re-exmination or going to see another ophthalmologist to get a second opinion. At the very least, though, you may consider using artificial tears 4-5x/day in this eye. Occasionally, a dysfunctional tear film (commonly called dry eye syndrome) can cause an eye to be red, can cause blurry vision, and can be common enough that an ophthalmologist may overlook it. If you are consistent with this for several days to a week or so and see no improvement, then that second opinion would definitely be a good idea.
