Sorry to hear about your eye problems. I would definitely ask your Dr about it.

I too have had increased bluriness, but am also dealing with MS and it is most probably related to my MS.

Talk to your dr and let us know!

What meds are you one?
I was on demeral or something in the hospital and that did give me double vision. Once I got off of that I was better.
I also have heard it can be the medication they give you during the surgery.
Not sure how post op you are. This happened for a couple of days after my surgery.
Take care =)

Hi Karri,

I am 3 weeks post-op, and I have also noticed blurred vision. I was having to put moisture drops in my eyes several times each night, and I am drinking lots of water. I think this may have something to do with pain meds. I am on a very mild dose, but I do notice the problem is worse when I take any pills at night.
I find that drinking plenty of water and using Refresh Liquigel (an extra-strength eye lubricant) really helps. I also turned off my ceiling fan. When you live in the Deep South, that's a difficult thing to do. But it did help my dry eyes!

Good Luck!

Hi this has also happened to me. It was at its worst at three weeks post op. I have been told that it could be hormonal or could still be the result of anathesia still being in the system.

Mine is a lot better now, I hope yours will improve

Nobody believed me when I said my eyesight was blurry. Well about 4 weeks post op it went back to normal. My sister in law is a nurse and told me it could be from anethesia, pain meds and just plain healing process. It got better though, so I'm not worried anymore. I think the drugs effect everyone differently.

I had blurred vision for a while and it just recently went away..I am starting my 5th week of recovery!!! I know the nausea medicine can give you blurred vision for a couple of days but mine definitely lasted a couple of weeks.

Don't worry it will go away. My sister keeps telling me it is my age...great thing turn 40 and lose all your hormones and your eyesight!

I have too! I thought that the cause was from the pain meds that I have been taking. I go to my post op on Monday and hopefully will be able to get a different prescription other than Percocet. I think that will clear up the problem. Funny how so many other issues pop up after.

I noticed it too! I had just been to the eye doctor before my surgery. When I finally felt like reading again, I had to rely on my bifocals - not really a necessity before the surgery. I was wondering if I was going crazy or if there really was a reason for the "eye" problems. Great to hear I am not alone!

Bless you all! I'm a little more than 3 weeks post-op and had seriously
thought about making an appt with an eye Doc. Now I'll give it a few more
weeks to see if this mild blurriness passes. Hugs, anna
