First, let me write that I'm nearsighted (left) in one eye and farsighted (right) in the other eye and have glasses for these conditions.
I only need the glasses for PowerPoint lectures or when the prof is writing on the blackboard and/or for movies and other events...depending on my seating location.
During the first week of Oct. 2009, I began experiencing blurred vision in my right eye.
I could not read the newspaper or my mail. For e-mail messages, I simply enlarged the font. However, I could see okay to drive and for viewing things further off. This lasted for about a week and it was gone.
The 2nd week I could see okay for about 3 days, and then the blurred vision returned.
It has been coming and going for the past 4 weeks.
My primary physician couldn't determine any medical cause, and recommended my seeing an ophthalmologist.
Since I currently don't have any health insurance due to a lay-off, I thought I would try to identify the problem on my own...and if I couldn't...then I'd go to the ophthalmologist.
I bought some "readers glasses" last week (1.25) and was able to read my mail and the newspaper.
However, on Sunday, 11/ 8, the glasses I had bought 4 days earlier were virtually useless...the blurriness had increased.
So I bought another pair...these are 1.75.
Today (Tuesday), the blurriness has lessened.
I have had my glucose level checked twice over the last 2 weeks, and it was within the normal range....so I'm not diabetic.
