I'm 54 and had a hysterectomy 2 weeks ago. I had it done

Customer Question

I'm 54 and had a hysterectomy
2 weeks ago. I had it done robotically it took 4 hours and I have had zero painkillers the last 5 days. I feel surprising good for the short amount of time that has passed. Yesterday I went into a store with overhead lighting and after leaving the outside sunlight and I never felt like my vision adjusted from the outside to the inside lighting. History.. I do wear 2.00 readers. I'm a migraine aura with no headache sufferer but this has no aura which I am writing about today. I have great distance vision. But in Target everything stayed blurry at a distance. It stayed like that the whole time I was in there my bp has been alittle higher since surgery but i take the same meds that I've taken for 10 years. Again I really notice blurriness indoors so not sure why. 1 more thing i still have my ovaries and before my surgery I still had period so I'm not yet through menopause. Hopefully you will know what's happening

Thanks for this question.

Is the vision still blurry today?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No not in the house but I wear my readers alot in the house. Its more distance in stores for the last couple days that seems blurry. I'm just waking up now so I can't really say how it will be today

Let me know later how it is

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm really just curious about why things are blurry at a distance. It's been like this a couple days. Are you thinking it'll get clearer the more days that pass
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It seems normal in the house and looking out doors today

Any thoughts would be appreciated

It seems normal to me but

it could be related to the anesthesia
