I gave myself an eye test as one eye feels like it's got grit in.. I closed one eye to do the test....Okay, my right eye that feels gritty, when I look at the PC monitor with the right eye only I can see clearly but when I use my reading glasses it is blurred.   

It's completely opposite with my left eye.

Looking at distance with my right eye blurred but with my left eye it's good, again opposite with my left eye. 

Never had any problems with my eye sight before apart from needing reading glasses.

Not sure the Filipino optician would understand me!

I would look at a back up like in the image below if I was you. 

I have the same problem.  My dominant eye (right) is worse than my left.  Went to the optician and got the exam and new glasses.  Made the mistake of buying continuous grind trifocals.  Worse mistake

That is exactly what happens. As the muscles round the eye weaken reading vision becomes more impaired but distance sight improves. Irritating because you have to change lenses again. I have prog

I'd go in and have it checked if it persists.

I've had repairable wet macular degeneration in both eyes and when that happens you get a gray blind spot in the center of your focus ( in my cases). 

The one time I had a "gritty" eye irritation, it was from a particle scratching my living lens surface. Was working under a vehicle with eyeglasses, but no goggles, and a rust particle fell onto my eye.  After irrigating it, it still felt gritty. At the bush clinic the emergecy doctor irrigated it again, took me into the closed optician's office and examined it with his equipment. Saw the cut or abrasion and told me that it would self heal very quickly since eyes are essential survival elements and nature gives it a high priority for self repairs.

Hope that helps to know.

I feel my distance sight improved when my reading sight deteriorated - or maybe my imagination as the difference narrowed.

Hi Jim

Hope by now you have had your eye sight checked out.

Best not to mess about, as scaring can occur if not quickly remedied :thumbsup:

Pop the glass out of the right side of your reading glasses.  Problem solved.  That'll be 500 pesos please. :9436:
