Why does a Medrol (methylprednisolone) pack make your eyes blurry?

Why does a Medrol (methylprednisolone) pack make your eyes blurry?

Normally shouldn't: The Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack is a tapering dosage of oral steroids for a short term treatment of inflammation somewhere in the body.
