    I have also had this with no diagnosis since 1990.

    Eventually, i was registered Visually Impaired in 2016 by the Ophthalmologist at the eye hospital, have you asked about this?

    They will likely determine that the vision has just reduced to a certain level then stabilised with no improvement based on history of testing if no sign of improvement.

    I would defiantly request to see your consultant about this.

    You may find some good opticians in your area. I must admit, Specsavers and Boots should be good to look at. I would also suggest speaking with your doctor and get a hospital refferal. It could be an undiagnosed cartrac.

    I would agree with the Specsavers shout, after calling them out to test my sight again, as I had blurred & double vision, plus a 'blob' shadow top left eye. They prescribed me prism lenses (which sadly didn't help) & also referred me to the eye hospital. The appointment came through quickly & I've been toing & froing to there for a couple of months now, whilst they scan, test, scan & test again. Hopefully will know what's what soon. I have got cataracts in both eyes that will be sorted, but they're not the problem apparently. 

    Glad I go to Specsavers or that they come to me!

    what do you do everyday with your vision loss in both eyes?  I try and watch TV I can’t focus properly on it but I can sort of see what’s going on.

    Hi @bluebettle1976 do you wear glasses normally? Have they given you no answers to why your vision is blurry?
