The eye doctor said that the oil glands in my eye are stopped up. He said to place a hot washcloth on my eyes twice a day for two minutes. That was over two weeks ago and my vision is very cloudy. I couldn't see the license plate of the car in front of me when we were at a stoplight. Please advise.
JA: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?
Customer: I had a check/up just over two weeks ago. He said there was no change in my vision. Imy vision has been foggy for a month. Tears come out of the outside corner of my left eye.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I fall. Four times in the last two weeks. I lose my balance.

Only to continue to use the hot washcloth. I called his office on Thursday, did not get to talk to him, but the person who answered the phone said that it would take two weeks to get the results. It has been over two weeks at that time. Again it's much worse
