Is it possible that sinus inflammation cause cloudy vision or even eyes to cross?

Possible: It is possible for ethmoid (the sinuses next to the orbit) sinusitis to encroach upon the orbit (globe of the eye) and affect the extra-ocular muscles.

My motto is, that if you have to ask whether you should go or not, then it's time to go! You don't want this festering. ...Read more
