Blurry morning vision?

mem3368

Odd question... Does anyone else have some mornings where it feels like it takes a while to focus? I have glasses only for reading, but it seems like some mornings it's harder to focus and I need my glasses for a couple hours. But other days, it's just fine.

Do you ever get that?

Meg,

I do have mornings like that. I am not sure what causes it, but it does happen quite often. I am and insulin dependent diabetic and we sometimes have blurred vision, depending on if our sugar level is high or low and I do tend to think my problem may be cause from that.

I hope you find out what is causing yours.

Hugs~

Wow..... I thought it was just me. I have the same thing.

I've always had low blood sugar, maybe that's it. At least it's not actually just me. I wondered if I was just imagining it sometimes...

Do you ever have problems with your vision when going inside if it's really bright outside?

Hi, I have that too. I am wearing my contacts and sleep in them and still in the morning I can't read the computer and things are a little blurry. It usually goes away after a couple of hours and I'm not a diabetic. DeeDee

Lazy1- Not really. I have noticed the past several months that my night vision isn't as strong as it used to be. However, I did have LASIK to correct nearsightedness in 1998, but it doesn't stop your eyes from aging and changing. Plus, I work on a computer all day. I'm just keeping it in the symptom chart to keep track of it.

Meg, I have the samething. But I was told it's my meds. It does go away after a few hours. But, if it's real cloudy or raining, it lasts all day.

Are you on any meds.? It could be a result of what you are taking. I'm taking Neurontin 600 X's 2 at bedtime and it will still be with you when you get up, but, it goes away after a few hours. I'm also taking Amitriptyline for my migraines. It all depends on what meds you are taking. Hope this helps. WELCOME TO OUR GROUP! God BLess You. shortstuff

No, not on a lot of meds (at least yet). I'm on Prozac, and take some glucosamine/Chondriotin, Vitamin D, and Fish oil supplements, but that's it. I'm still waiting to get my approval letter to get to the Rheumy for an official diagnosis.

I used to work for an eye doctor and learned that as we age, all of us find it harder to see at night. There is not a certain age that this happens. Some are younger than others, but it starts as early as 35 - 40 years old.
