In brief: Few minutes

Many eye doctors and patients try to avoid using ointments because of the blurred vision they cause.
Sometimes, though, the required medication only comes in an ointment form, or a longer contact time associated with an ointment is desired. The blurred vision can last for a few minutes, up to perhaps half an hour, depending on how much ointment was used, and the tear production rate.
