I had 2 strokes several years ago, which resulted in the area around my left eye becoming numb(including the eye ball itself). I now suffer with blurred , almost foggy, vision in my left eye at intermittent times. These times seem to follow a pattern of alcohol intake and the more alcohol the more blurred (foggy) the vision becomes. The blurred vision normally lasts anywhere between 3 days to 1week (irrelevant to how much alcohol). My eyesight prior to the strokes was perfect, I now have glasses for long and short sightedness, 1 pair for driving and 1 pair for reading. My glasses do not improve the blurred/foggy vision. What do you think is the issue here????
Video and written answer:
Alcohol can be dehydrating so my initial thoughts are that your tear film is poor on this left eye, especially as the nerve endings required to trigger tear production might not work effectively in this eye since the stroke. Try using artificial tears to help lubricate the eye to protect the cornea from becoming dry as this will cause a problem with clear vision. I think it would be worth a trip to the opticians to get this looked at further.
