A couple of years ago, the vision in my left eye started to become a bit blurry and vignetted when I wore my glasses, but it was fine with contacts. After going to an opthamologist who couldn't find anything wrong, my optometrist diagnosed my eye as being inflamed and prescribed me an eye drop (I don't remember the name of it, but I think it was a kind of steroid). It went away after a month or so.
The problem has come back now and I haven't had a chance to go back to my optometrist. I just wanted to ask if you've ever seen something similar, and if there is an actual name for the condition. Internet research hasn't come up with too much, but I'm sure there are other people out there who could also use some info.
I think the original problem was caused by me wearing my contacts for longer than the two weeks they were meant for. Since then, I've been extra careful to not wear them past their listed wear period. Any advice on what I can do to get rid of or mitigate the problem?

I took an at home blood pressure reading a month or so ago right after a big dinner. My mom, who works in the medical field, said it was on the high side, although nothing alarming. But both her and I agreed there could be numerous factors attributing to a high reading like just having ate and having done some active house cleaning not long before.
How does my blood pressure affect this kind of situation? Any idea why my vision is blurry with my glasses, but just fine with contacts in? I forgot to mention in my first post that with glasses, my vision is clear in the morning and stays relatively clear most of the day, but starts to get blurry in the evening and at night.
And thanks for the insight. I really appreciate it. I'll be sure to bring up the blood pressure issue with my optometrist.
