Anxiety & Stress
Can anxiety & stress cause constant blurred vision even though your vision is 6/6. I got it checked from an eye doctor who said the eyesight is fine. I read that Chronic anxiety can cause such symptoms ? Is that true and if yes, then what is the best treatment for the blurred vision ? Thank you

Anxiety can present with multiple symptoms one of which is blurred vision. Sometimes anxiety symptoms are misunderstood as a physical illness for example loose stools, sweating, tremors and so on. But to identify the reason for your blurred vision, a thorough examination by a psychiatrist as well as ophthalmologist is required.

Extreme anxiety can cause episodic and frequent blurred vision but if you are having these symptoms continuously, you need to visit neurologist first. You might take another opthalmologist opinion also. If everything is fine from their assessment, then we can assess for anxiety by consulting psychiatrist.
Next Steps
Visit a neurologist.
