Since I have been undergoing chemo it seems like my vision declines weekly. It is now to the point that even glasses do not help much because my vision is so blurry. I am making many mistakes trying to read numbers and read and write -- all the time.
Someone told me not to bother going for an eye exam or new eyeglasses because this condition was going to dog me until at least three months after chemo ends and it would be a waste to try and correct "chemo vision" right now.
Anyone else seeing their vision slip away on chemo or did in the past? Any advice on how to cope with this? And did your vision improve or go back to pre-chemo levels after you finished chemo?
I am on Xelox regimen if that makes any difference.
