Hi Jinny

Glad to hear you're feeling better and the signs are good. The blurry vision may be due indirectly to the steroids. They increase the sugar in your blood and your body compensates for this by retaining a bit more water to try to dilute it. What happens then is that the curvature in your eye changes and you get a bit of blurred vision. If you try to keep your intake of carbs down it might help. (not much fun I know)



Hi Jinny glad you are doing ok. I had the blurred vision too but it has improved as I dropped lower on the Pred. I hope things go well for you as you travel this difficult path. I am down to 8mg of pred and struggling to get any lower at present (been on 8mg for 3 months now). So good luck and best wishes to you :)
