On warfarin, blur vision, eyes get red on wearing lens. Could this be due to the warfarin i am taking?

Good morning, I have been on warfarin (6 mg and 5 mg, it flutuates with my inr) for 6 1/2 months. I have dvt in my left leg and for the last four months i have been seeing blurry. I went to the optician and he told me that i needed specs to help me read the fine print and the computer screen so i was prescibed progressive lens but they are not helping the prob because i still have blurry sight when i wear them and at night both my eyes are red. Could this be due to the warfarin i am taking?

Warfarin is an anticoagulant or blood thinner. An eye complication is due to excessive bleeding either in the retina or a haemorrhage that is seen from the outside . Red eyes in your case do not seem to be due to the warfarin. Excessive computer use often causes dry eyes which can lead to blurry vision. Use lubricating eye drops and a lubricating eye ointment for a few days at night to relieve your symptoms. This should work in a few days but rest assured, the warfarin does not sound like a precipitating factor of blurred vision in your case.
