Question:
Why does my right eye take half an hour to refocus after close work (e.g. reading, sewing)?

Answer:
There are many potential reasons for such a symptom. These can include, among others, age, earlier diseases of the eye, eye strain, neurological disease, and history of chicken pox. I think that an evaluation of your eyes by an ophthalmologist would be a good idea.
