    Same for me 24/7 feeling of weakness in my vision, meaning hard to process detailed environments (creating a sort of tunnel vision), difficulty to focus, and sometimes double vision.

    It's always there, but it's less intense in the evenings.

    Not so much blurred but dimmed, I often describe it has being bleary eyed to others, almost like being really drunk lol.

    I do however get classic migraine visual auras about 4 to 5 a yr, which always last almost 20 mins. These predate my CFS though, so I have no idea if there is a connection, although last yr when I was first unwell the docs thought a lot of my symptoms were migraine related...that was an initial theory.

    Hi Esta,

    yep, affects my eyes. Sometimes they oscillate? by which I mean they kind of shake? takes a moment or two to focus. sometimes blur. Sometimes I get "white out" in one eye where it is like I have just looked at something really bright and then I get the opposite of a dark impression when I close my eye? lasts a couple of minutes. Also get the aura migraines. All tests for eyes and brain mri come back ok so, just kind of deal with symptoms 😀

    Hi, yes this happens a lot, most days but tends to clear in the evenings too. I find i can't pick up the details of anything, like faces are blurred and can't always recognize people i don't know well. Even if i do know them well they look different sometimes. I avoid driving when like this. I used to like making jewellery but my eyes just can't focus well enough now. 😦
