My vision has gotten SO much worse in the last 2 years and the eye doctor thinks it's the prednisone doing it (and I'm usually only on about
10 mg/day). She said that stopping the prednisone will NOT reverse it, which stinks because I'm still fairly young and the glasses are getting thicker and thicker as my eyes get worse. She said it gets worse at different times of the day because it causes dry eyes and the blurriness gets worse when your eyes are dry. I told all of this to my rheumy because she's putting me on plaquenil for the arthritis and it can cause retinal problems and she said the eye dr knew what she was talking about
. I talked to one guy at my gym before who is now legally blind and he said it's because he was on like 100 mg/day or something for years.
