Visual disturbance: Could be from congestion because when you sleep the fluids from congestion flow into the eye area.Would elevate head of bed with pillow between mattress and boxspring. That being said follow up today with optometrist(lenscrafters, hour eyes) as they can get a good look at the eye and are accesible and can tell you if something in the eye needs immediate attention. f/u w/ doc may need antibiotics
