    For the past two days i have experienced blurry vision. I have been needing to sleep in the afternoons again:( I sleep about 2 hours. When I woke today my eyes were red and feeling unclear. I had some extra goop in them I don't usually have.

    Then about a week ago i experienced a lot of floaters. i was at the beach and the sky was cloudy and expansive. Otherwise I may not have noticed them.

    Then, I have had allergies worse than usual. i blew my nose and had a bunch of starburst like floaters immediately after for a little while.

    I'm concerned that my Lyme may be getting worse (new symptoms) or I could just have the start of an eye infection.

    Any ideas, help, support or similar symptoms?
    Thank you,

    The wisest thing to do is to consult with your doctors. You might have to start with your general practitioner while you wait to get into appointments with a Lyme-knowledgeable opthamologist and/or Allergy specialist.

    I do know that Lyme does affect the eyes.

    Renae is right get checked by an eye doctor. The floaters & starbursts could be due to a lyme or other infection getting killed and causing a 'herx', and/or could be part of an infection.

    When my son was being treated more specifically for bartonella, he would have a lot of floaters to the point where he wouldn't drive as his vision would cloud up with them unexpectedly, light looked 'different' like starbursts at times, etc. However, he didn't have the redness or 'goop'...

    let us know what your eye doc and your LLMD says?

    all the best,
