    I have anxiety but i have to say it hasn't affected my vision before, it makes me dizzy. do you ever feel dizzy when it affects your vision? dont be nervous, being nervous with make your anxiety even worse and you will end up going in circles. I have heard it can make your vision blurred. so it sounds like anxiety to me

    i hope you feel better soon!

    Hi, yes anxiety can cause vision problems especialky your peripheral vision. Basically when in fight or flight our eye sight is focused on what is ahead and not at what is at the side. But like tunnel vision. It's nothing serious just the natural response to anxiety. Neil

    Hello anahita.p

    Yes, I have experienced blurred vision/fuzzyfeeling when in an anxious situation.  Trembly voice when trying to speak, and blushing/red flushes on neck and chest.

    And a general shaky feeling.  I have even had these symptoms when having someone I did not know very well come for a coffee at my home!  It's ridiculous, but then so is anxiety and all its awful symptoms.  Good Luck!
