Blurry vision/eye pain

Good afternoon everyone, I haven't seen a lot of talk about how Fibro may or may not effect your eyes. My right eye hurts a lot plus my vision is blurry and/or is getting worse. I do have an auto immune disease that effects my corneas and I know that contributes some. But just wondering if this is just me or is Fibro playing a part in this too.

Love & Hugs Blink

I do get blurry vision, and sometimes my eyeballs seem to vibrate, but I don't know if this is exclusively a Fibro thing.

I have blurry vision also, especially looking out at a distance. Sometimes when I am on my laptop I can't see my 46" inch TV (what's on it). I also have floaters. I need to go to eye doctor but can't afford it.

my vision seems to get really blurry. I did at one time go to my eye dr to see if my prescription changed but it hadn't. I also get little bubbles and at times my eyes feel tight.

I have had eye pain & blurriness. It feels like crushed glass in my eye & fairly frequently experience the blurriness which comes & goes so I know it's not related to my prescription. I do have an eye appointment later this month.

I do know that both Neurontin & Lyrica have blurry vision as possible side effects. I switched back to Neurontin because I hadn't really experienced significant side effects with that, whereas with the Lyrica I had the blurry vision, weight gain & major water retention. It could be that even with the Neurontin, since they are both so similar, it's a side effect that has shown up simply due to the amount of time on the drug. It's hard to say for sure.
