i had blurry vision and eye issues when i was on pred too. went to eye doctor and my eyes were perfect. he said it was most likely pred and too see if i still had issues when i was done with it. if so, come back... but they went away when i stopped pred.
it is a common side effect with long term use of pred.. glaucoma
ive had pred so many times now that my doc said no more. thats why im starting imuran.
pred didnt use to do anything for me, but the last 3 flares, it has worked. or maybe its combo of pred, tumeric, vitamin d3, fish oil and xango juice.
not sure, but the eye thing cleared up when i stopped pred.
