My eyesight has become quite blurry as a side effect of Lyrica. Does anyone else have this problem?

Goodness. I spoke with my eye dr. and he advised me to use “Refresh” - A brand of eyedrops (I was told long ago that I don’t blink enough!), 4 times a day.

Heavens to Betsy— i pray this blurry vision goes away. You said yours is off and on, I pray mine is temporary. Has anyone ever said you would do better with eye drops? My dr. said I don’t blink enough (!) so my eyes are dry. When I called his office I was told that taking Refresh Tears 4 times a day would help.

No I havent been told to try eye drops. My eyes dont feel dry, just blurry at times. And not all the time. It just comes and goes randomly.

My eyesight is often blurry as well. I just thought I needed new glasses (and that might be it...I have to find out). But hearing that others have this as well makes me wonder if it has to do with the Fibro.

I also have double vision, which is only partially corrected with glasses. An ophthalmologist told me there was nothing that could be done about the part that is not corrected.
Anyone else have double vision?

I too have blurry and double vision. Did not connect the dots until here in this forum a couple of weeks ago.

Yes I have blurry vision on & off, I put it down to needing new glasses, but maybe it is the fibromyalgia 😟

Yes I get blurry and use eye drops but that's because they are dry doesn't help the blurriness. Don't get double vision and I don't take the end that was mentioned either so I think it's just another fibro symptom 😕
