I have just joined this site, and after dealing with colon cancer followed by liver cancer,  both of these areas are now considered under control, however I now have one small tumor onone lung,so I am taking Xeloda pills, and  Oxy infusion. I have now had 3 treatments, and I now notice that my eyesight especially for close range, like on internet, getting worse, and I now use my reading glasses when on internet.  I never mentioned this to my oncologist, but I will next week when I go for infusion nbr 4.  Are  there any others who have same problem and did you get any improvement after ending chemo??? tks   Paul

yes it gets worse as I have noticed and Dr. confirmed it some say it gets better when you get off the Chemo for a couple months.
