Hi,

As per your description,his blood pressure should be monitored firstly.

If he has dizziness,headache along with such blurred vision then visit ER.

Otherwise see an Ophthalmologist for eye exam to rule out possible causes like dry eyes from work,conjunctivitis,cornea swelling.

He can apply cool compresses on eyes and try lubricating eye drops.

If he has pain,itching,severe blurred vision then visit ER.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

Your satisfaction is our goal.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
