Sometimes my vision gets blurry when I blink and when I blink again it clears. What could it be?

Probably dry eye: This is most common when first waking up and the blurry vision is temporary. Artificial tears over the counter will help.

The primary care doctor should be aware of all of the patient's medications and any herbal supplements. Family history can be helpful information as well.

Why does my vision get better when I'm more relaxed and when I'm stressed it gets all weird and blurry?

Why does my vision get better when I'm more relaxed and when I'm stressed it gets all weird and blurry?

How things work: There are at least two ways this can happen. Your pupils dilate (part of natural mammal fight/flight response to threat) and in normal light this can blur vision.
