I have been to a half dozen specialists, who have been unable to diagnose my condition. My eyesight is mostly blurry with very short periods of focusing. When reading the eyechart, I can read all the way to the bottom line, but have to wait every few seconds or so until my eyesight focuses to get to the next section of letters. Therefore, I technically have 20/20 vision. This does not explain why I cannot see to drive, or read without getting 2 inches from the page. We accidentally found out during a routine test that my eyes will be completely focused for about an hour or so if I use dilating drops at night. Crystal clear. Try explaining that one to a police officer! I am tired of getting sent home with no answers, trying to figure this out myself. No kidding, they have NO IDEA what is wrong and cannot even offer a suggestion. Does anyone else have this problem or know what it could be? I have had every single blood test, neurological test, etc known to mankind and NOTHING has come up as being even slightly suspicious.

It was awful. I ended up going to my optometrist and he made me do 3D exercises with a computer. I don't have it anymore
