    Im struggling to read or watch TV. Ive had an abnormally busy weeknd and hav been trying to rest as much as i can.
    I have low cortisol issues, not diabetic. Seeing endocrinologist soon.
    It’s like looking through dirty glasses.
    Any advice?

    I saw my ophthalmologist last week, and learned I'm developing cataracts. It was a surprise because I'm kinda young for that. She said it can happen earlier when you have a systemic illness... Not sure if that could be part of the blurry vision you're experiencing, but may be worth checking. Hope you find answers! Hugs!

    I get blurry vision all the time (every 3-4 hrs or so). Some supplements have helped a bit stamina wise, but this is mainly a result of cognitive exertion for me. I've got some new glasses which have that prevencia coating on them which reduces glare quite a bit....doesn't help with contrast unfortunately. I've found pacing by alternating tasks like breaking up screen work with other things helps a bit. I just treat this as another symptom of the dreaded brain fog.

    I get blurry vision in my left eye. It's a combination of having astigmatism and dry eyes.

    My vision fluctuates frustratingly from day to day, even hour to hour. Only resting with my eyes closed seems to help a bit. All my eye tests (including pressure) are normal.

    Here are some related links, including Phoenix Rising threads, that might be helpful (not recommendations).

    This happens to me often, especially when I'm tired. Resting helps, closing the eyes. If I could sleep it off it is great, but often it stays for 2-3 days and goes away gradually; from blurry to fuzzy and than fuzzy on the edges of the objects to complete riddance.

    I use a boric acid eyewash I make myself and keep cold in the refrigerator. It feels great, adds some lubrication and kills or suppresses germs. I have had dry eye problems for nearly as long as I have had this illness, and they have resulted in recurring infections until I remembered how my mother and her mother used to make and use boric acid eyewash.

    I can also get fuzzy dim vision from very low blood pressure, but this is another cause.

    If you have not seen your ophthalmologist recently, I think it would be a good idea to do so and eliminate (or find) any non-ME causes of the blurry vision.
