What's Causing My Blurred Vision?

By    |   Thursday, 14 May 2015 10:04 AM

Question: I was sitting on my terrace a few days ago and my eyes starting to shake and everything was blurry. I took my blood pressure medication and it went away. Is this something I should worry about?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Blurred vision occurring at rest is a serious symptom that should not be disregarded.

See your doctor to be sure that you are not getting warning signs of an impending stroke, aneurism, or even an ocular emergency such as a retinal or vitreous detachment. These conditions have the potential to leave you with irreversible blindness, disability, or death.

Be advised that your blood pressure medicine usually takes at least one to two hours to be absorbed, so it is highly unlikely your vision problems were caused by your forgetting your blood pressure medicine.

High blood pressure alone does not cause these symptoms in isolation.
