Afterimages

Posted , 3 users are following.

Anyone here got a lot of afterimages? I get a lot now and faster than I use too. Sometimes for any little thing I get after images or even if I'm driving and looking straight ahead, I see like shadowy lines in the sky. Anyone get that?

    Just how the light comes in and your processing of it. I actually thought this was kind if normal deoending on your vision and stuff. Maybe your too aware of a normal body thing.

      Maybe I am too aware of it now! Because from what I remember before all this I wouldn't notice as much afterimage or

      Trails along with the like shadowy lines in the my vision too. I do know I notice more floaters now but I do know that's normal since floaters are normal just the afterimages kinda triggers me a bit at times

    I can relate to Phil. When i had post-natal depression, and (for some reason) when I was on medication for it, I definitely noticed after-images more.

    I bet there's a long medical word for it.

    Also, as I get older these things seem to be more apparent. Have you had an eye exam lately - because I'm sure your optician will be able to explain this and reassure you, too, Eduardo.
