    Hello, I'm a 21 year old male and I've been having a problem with my right eye lately, I'd say for the past 1-2 weeks. At first I just thought it was nothing, but now I'm starting to get worried because it won't go away. The problem I'm having is the vision out of my right eye is blurry, when I'm looking at something far away. Up close, I don't really notice any problems. Some things about me:

    -I don't wear glasses
    -I've had 3 surgeries on my left eye, but all 3 were over 10 years ago and they were related to a condition I had - lazy eye.
    -I'm in excellent shape. I'd say top 5% of the people my age. I work out 4 days a week and I can run a mile in under 7 minutes. I have a good diet, don't eat a lot of sweets.
    -I don't take any supplements, except for just a daily vitamin
    -I'm on the computer a lot
    -I get 6.5 to 8 hours of sleep each night
    -I have allergies, but they mostly affect me in the summer

    Once again, the problem occurs in only my right eye. I would appreciate any expert's opinion on what I might have here, and if it's serious or not. If this isn't the right community to post it in, I'm sorry, if there is a better one for eye problems please tell me. I couldn't find another community that really deals with eye problems/questions.

    Thank you
