Foggy feeling, blurred vision, unfocused, sudden onset. MRI/CT/Bloods clean. Tried anti-ds and migraine meds no help. Want to feel normal again?

Need examination: Thank you for your question young lady. You'll need an examination & review possibly by a neurologist since those symptoms could be related to a central nervous problem. There could be other things as well but an imaging study of the brain (MRI with contrast) could be helpful. Again, 1st things 1st. Good examination.

I had a sudden onset of blurred vision in right eye, dizziness, nausea, and felt faint. What could this be symptomatic of?

I had a sudden onset of blurred vision in right eye, dizziness, nausea, and felt faint. What could this be symptomatic of?

Low blood pressure?: If this occurred after a change in position (lying to standing) this could be low blood pressure (postural hypotension), this type of blurry vision only lasts seconds. If the vision loss lasted >15-30 min with associated flashing lights or headache this could be an ocular migraine. Due to your age I do not suspect other more serious conditions. If it happens again see your doctor to check your bp. ...Read more

I am experiencing cloudy or blurred vision (quality: blurring of distant objects, blurring of nearby objects) (time frame: gradual onset). From ripped cornea. Using Vigamox.?

Examination: If you haven't had an exam, make one now. You're treating yourself with Vigamox™ which is likely helping to protect from infection but your blurry vision could be from corneal scarring or inflammatory reaction. An Eye MD will be able to tell you if additional anti inflammatory medication is required. You may also need prophylactic treatment if you suffer from recurrent epithelial erosions. ...Read more

Hist. Of pituitary tumors. Has one removed 5/23/13. Sudden onset of blurry vision in left eye. See dr? What could cause this?
