Blurred vision?



Recommended Posts

I just had balloon placed on 8/29. No complications with procedure itself as far as I know. I wasn't wearing my contacts during the procedure. Now my near sighted vision is blurred with either my glasses or contacts. Has anybody heard of this?

Did you have a patch behind your ear for nausea?

If you had the patch for your nasea that is where your blurred vision is coming from! It took me two weeks to get past having blurred vision trying to see things up close even after the patch had been taken off for a week.

It shouldn't really take that long, but yes a side effect of the scopolamine patch is blurred vision. If you haven't already, take it off. Let your doc know if your vision doesn't clear in a couple of days.

Yup.....it is that patch. I had the same thing during my Brachioplasty and had forgotten they put one of those on me.

I took it off on day 4 post op and within 24 hours my vision was back.

Incidentally, pain meds can cause some of that as well.

I asked my surgeon the same question. He said it could be the Scopolamine patch or it could be the gel they put in your eyes before they tape them shut for surgery.

Note to self: I don't have to take this day all at once but rather one step, one breath and one moment at a time. I am only one person.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
