My vision changes often and my doctor has no clue. Is there any other way to figure out what may be causing this?

Vision changes: The eye should be of a stable shape and size by your early twenties.

The child needs clear media to see and develop his/her visual pathway.

Eye pigment: Can you post a photo? It would be most helpful? Most likely not a concern. Some folks get some pigment deposit on the white of the eye. Rarely is this a concern, but as with issues like this, seeing it for the provider is very important to help make a correct diagnosis and inform you correctly.

What does it mean if my vision changes every couple mins?

Probably dry eye: This is most common when first waking up and the blurry vision is temporary. Artificial tears over the counter will help. Make sure it does NOT contain any redness or itching reliever in it. Just a pure lubricating drop. Use this through out the day and when waking up. Generally 3-4x/day. Dry eye is very common. If the blurry vision persists, see an eye doctor. Good luck.
