Does pink eye cause blindness?

Pink eye is a "cold": No, pink eye is a viral infection of the conjunctiva that will run a typical course in about a week, just like the common cold. There can be temporary vision disturbances in some cases but there is no risk of permanent vision loss or blindness.

Is it possible to fix my lazy eye when I already had surgery on it before?

Maybe: Each successive revision of the eye muscles is progressively more difficult due to scarring with increased unpredictability of results. Yes, you may reoperate if indicated - please have your surgery done by an experienced strabismus surgeon.

Seeing better: There isn't a percentage cutoff. Usually if vision is 20/40 and can be improved with a new prescription by one or more lines, it's significant. However, improvement in vision is subjective, and new glasses are good to get if you feel like they make a difference.

Can double vision/lazy eye be cured with surgery?

Sometimes: Prisms can be used in glasses if the double vision/lazy eye is small to correct things without surgery. If the defect is to large, prisms are not a realistic option.

Does anyone know if vitamin d deficiency will make your eyes blurry and have double vision?

Vitamin D and Eyes: There are few clear links between vitamin d deficiency and eye disease. An old report once discussed a potential link between age-related macular degeneration and vitamin d, but the recent areds and areds2 studies do not focus on this nutrient. Instead, there is greater emphasis on vitamins c, e, and zinc, as well as beta-carotene and lutein. Some people who lack vitamin d also lack vitamin a.
