Over the years I have noticed that my right eye is hotter

Resolved Question:

Over the years I have noticed that my right eye is hotter than the left (when i put sunglasses on the right one is getting steamed!) and now I am getting slightly blurred vision which lasts few seconds, especially in the mornings. I wear contact lenses and have regularly checks with the optician and they dont see anything wrong.

There is no exact medical explanation for this.

However the fact that one side of the glasses is steamier does not mean you eye is hotter.

Has anyone , a doctor, felt this to be the case, or measured it to be the case?

No, i have mentioned it to the optician but he ignored it. But it is the same eye that is getting blurry ocasionally.

And was this checked for glaucoma?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it was not, should i get that checked?

Pressure in the eye could account for this.

See an opthalmologist.
