    I woke up this morning and it was like my left eye wouldn't focus, after playing around with it I've noticed I can still focus but there's a blur that won't go away with anyway I focus my left eye. Right eye is perfectly fine. I'm wondering if anyone has ever experienced I'm pretty concerned and was thinking about seeing an eye doctor if it sticks around till the end of the day. In school now I only woke up about an hour ago. Does this just sound like allergies? I've never had this problem before its almost like there's a film or something on the outside of my eye. Just looking for some input thanks everyone.

    I have this problem when either I am under a lot of stress, or if I am getting a sinus headache. So hopefully it is just related to allergies or stress or something. BUT, I wouldn't really listen to people who are not medical professionals though (such as myself)... If you are truly concerned about it, and it has not happened before, I would go see a doctor.

    You might have slept with your hand under that side of your face, and your eye got just a little "squished" by the pressure, and your eye-problems might resolve themselves with an hour or two... If not, then, of course you might prefer to go see the eye doctor over this.

    I have this issue and its high blood pressure on my part. I have had it for a few years on my right eye! My eye specialist told me, my eyes are ok and will recover “just don’t go any higher on my blood pressure” am taking medication for this high blood pressure issue and is the sole reason why I nearly quit photography.

    Don’t mean to scare anyone, I just think people should know, I learned the hard way “I ended up in hospital”.

    Logan, yours sounds like you haven't woken up just yet? "from deep sleep, issue that usually goes away" ones that need not to worry about. Still see your Doctor if it persists.

    It cleared up now, I thought I might have slept on it weird but I didn't think so too much. I woke up at 6 and turned off my alarm and was focused on it them when I woke up again around 7 it was blurred, then after a shower it still was, then out in the sun and it was still blurry. Just took a little time. I guess that was the longest time it ever took my eye to wake up I guess. Just over concerned :p

    I'm not sure you can be overconcerned when it comes to your eyes. Glad to hear it cleared up!! :D

    It doesn't take longer than that one hour between 6 and 7 to be sleeping in such an awkward situation that the eye-ball gets a little compressed. You have no control over how you sleep and often change position the moment you wake up, so you don't remember, either. The fact that it disappeared after a while (and it does TAKE a while, and here's someone speaking from experience, I've had that occur to me several times now!) just shows me that it must have been the result of a funny sleeping position.

    There are various things that can cause eye problems.
    Conjunctivitis can cause a film over the eye. It's quite a contagious infection and is very common. Bloodshot eyes and some discharge is the usual symptom, along with the conviction that you have something stuck over your eye.
    Spring can cause problems.
    Hayfever and similar allergies can produce symptoms similar to conjunctivitis.
    High pollen counts or dust can cause filming of the eye.
    Most will respond quickly to antiseptic eye-drops like Brolene.
    If you get the problem on a regular basis then it would be wise to see a specialist.
    If you have problems focussing, your eyes appear bloodshot and you become sensitive to light (light actually hurts your eyes) then consult a physician immediately. (see my sig)

    The vision in my left eye is almost always blurry, glasses or contacts correct it a bit, but not fully. I have Keratoconus. Luckily, it sounds like yours is more of a temporary problem...but don't hesitate to see an eye doctor ASAP.

    Its completely gone now just as sharp as it should be. Just never happened before at least not for that long. I also have some trouble with floaters, more a distraction than a problem even with them I've won awards for target shooting and just got scared for my good eye :p
