Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Dear user
Erythromycin tablets are not known to cause blurred vision. Hence this may not be medicine side effect. From your history intraocular pressure seems to be on the higher side and this requires investigations and treatment and this may be a cause for blurred vision. So consult ophthalmologist for further investigations.
