Pred. can definitely cause eye and vision issues. I would call my eye doctor.

Anything affecting your vision warrants a call to the doctor.Could be just a side effect but not worth taking the risk.

pred can cause eye probs as well as glaucoma.

i was having blurry vision while on 50mg of pred and went to eye doctor. he said he saw some cloudiness that would go away when off of pred.

im off it now and have no more blurry vision.
definitely go to eye doctor to get it checked. better sooner than later, cuz if it is something then you can catch it early and fix it.
cuz if you wait too long it could be unreversable and cause blindness like glaucoma.

not trying to scare you, this is just what i was told when i was having problems. better to get checked now!
