HelloWhat are the antiinflammatories you are using ?Are they topical or oral?What are you taking them for?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Arthrotec(diclofenac) taken orally,100 to 150 Modified release per day. Taken orally. Taken for spinal problems, particularly neck problems. Taking for 20+years. Now have blurry vision when reading with little whorls appearing.
Expert:  eyesight2020 replied 2 years ago.
Hello,Based on your symptom of blurred vision with whorls or possibly distorted vision it would be best to have a full exam with your eye care doctor whom would possible do an Oct test to better evaluate your macula and make sure your symptoms are not related to a macula problem.
Expert:  eyesight2020 replied 2 years ago.
Once you are evaluated with that test then it will be easier to tell if your symptoms are related to your medication or a macula problem.Your medication can cause blurred vision but when discontinued subsides.So an evaluation with your PvP and eye doctor is reccommended.Any other questions otherwise please rate this answer so I will be compensatedThankyou
