My Mom is has been on chemo (for ovarian cancer) for well over a year and has suddenly developed fuzzy vision.  She saw an eye doc today and there is nothing on her pictures but she said it hurts like it did before they discovered a hemmorage in her other eye.
 
Does anyone else have this problem? 
Does it get better? 
 
Thanks!!!!!!

I have been taking chemo now since 2000 and during a  long stint with Abraxane (form of Taxol) I developed major keratitis which gave me very blurry vision. It so bad I couldn't read well and had difficulty seeing the t.v. I had to wear clear contacts (no rx) to let the cornea heal. about six weeks after discontinuing the treatment, the vision cleared and has been fine ever since.

 

Hope this helps -- Jackie

Thanks for sharing here about it since the more we know, the better armed we are to deal with this and to make decisions about our care.  It's much appreciated.
 
Best wishes and concern for all,

Hahaha!  No, when I click my heels three times, the only  place I get taken to is the Finger Lakes in New York state.  I appreciate the smile today    cool   I'm on my way to the doctor to make them give me something for the pain I've been experiencing since my first surgery. 
 
Hugs!
