I m a 52 year old male 225 lbs 5 5 and recently started adding coconut oil to my daily diet and noticed in the afternoon on both occasions of taking it in the AM I would develope blurry vision but not the whole vision field It would begin in the lower portion of the eye and if I allowed it to float to the middle I would not be able to see It is hard to describe but if I kept looking down and to the right it would slowly fade away and the disappear in about 15 minutes Can you tell me what might be causing this problem?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Dear sir
your complaints of blurring vision are not related to using coconut oil. Your history seems like you are having floaters. Floaters are because of age related changes in the vitreous layer of the eye. Floaters are common around 45-55 years of age because of age related liquefaction of the vitreous. However I advice you to undergo examination of the retina and vitreous by a ophthalmologist or preferably by a retina surgeon for diagnosis and to rule out any other associated condition.
thank you
