Vision still off

Posted , 3 users are following.

So it has been almost 10 months and my vision is still off and running my anxiety. I have almost a hazy, blurred vision and focus trouble. It seem to switch between eyes but seems to affect one eye more than the other.

When I am on the computer I can literally see the words fade in and out, almost like I was focusing a camera. Also lights and backgound sun bothers me and washes people out.

Can this truly all be anxiety? Been to the eye doctor and they say my eyes are fine.

    Hi Willy

    Yes i believe it can be anxiety related. I have the same  thing. Many times i hve to shut one eye to be able to read something.

    Have had my eyes tested again as i thought they were deterioting. But Not so.

    And watching tv is a nightmare. But when the anxiety is under control my eyesight improves.

    I also have a friend who has accute anxiety and this is really bad for her. She uses eye drops and it helps a bit. 

    Good luk and i hope it improves

    Hi Willy75608 smile anxiety can do strange things to your eyes. I know that most opticians and GP's do not feel floaters and anxiety are connected, but I know mine are far more noticeable when I'm very anxious. I have also experienced strange visual problems with anxiety such as shimmering vision, feeling like my vision 'shakes' or jumps and sometimes when I am the most aware of myself (when around other people or in a group of people,) I feel like my eyes suddenly run away with me, almost as if they move without my doing it. It's bizarre and is all tied to my fear of losing control...

    The visual symptoms of anxiety can cause anxiety by themselves. You have to learn not to fear them. The first step in doing this is to visit an optician and gp. Rule out anything untoward.. Once given the all clear (you must trust the diagnosis given,) you now know it is anxiety...notice when it happens and know it is anxiety. This doesn't happen instantly. It takes a lot

    Of practise. Slowly, however you will get less frightened and in turn, become less aware smile

    Part of anxiety is this almost 'hyper alert' mode in terms of bodily sensations and I think health anxiety generates this.

    Keep going.
