• Can an immunocompromised immune system cause blurry vision?


    Question:

    Can an immunocompromised immune system cause blurry vision? I have Lyme disease (bacterial infection causes by the bite of a tick), Morgellon's (a poorly understood skin condition) and MRSA (a bacterium that causes infections in many parts of the body). I suspect these things are contributing.


    Answer:

    None of these diseases should have a direct effect on vision. Lyme disease can, in some circumstances, cause eye inflammation (uveitis), but the other conditions do not have an effect on the eye. I would see your ophthalmologist for a thorough dilated eye exam to see if there is a treatable diagnosis.
