Wonky vision

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi ladies. Does anyone else have issues with their vision, particularly when on their period? Mine gets so out of whack that week. Blurry, increase in floaters, just feels "off" for at least a week. Checked out fine at the optometrist. The floaters are driving me nuts.

    I did when this all started. Don't panic like I did. I also went and had eye exam, then I ended up having CT of brain to be sure. It's one of the many "lovely" possible things that happen during this time. Your vision can actually change back and forth (I was always near sighted, now I am far sighted. I wear contacts and the strengths were flucutating for a bit. That has also since setttled down.

    Yes, I get this, I never really paid much attention to it until I got the floaters.  I have had blurry and sometimes dizziness in th past, but sometimes I tend to strain my eyes on computer so that is what I blammed the blur on, and the dizziness I blamed on my iron defiencency or if I don't drink enough water.....but the floaters came this year when I was dealing with other hormonal issues.....since I started progestrone cream and started acupuncture I have less floaters.  I go to the eye doctor tomorrow as it has been three years since I went and I will mention it to her.  I am pretty sure it is hormonal....it seems every new thing that comes on seems to be related to peirimenopause.

      I get dizziness too. When I ovulate then again when my period starts. It's been a rough year trying to figure out all of these symptoms, but at least they are considered "normal". Always nice to know we aren't alone.

    Hi Jennifer,

    I get these exact symptoms. Along with fatigue it is one of my worst symptoms. It is as if I am earing odd strong lenses. And yes it makes me dizzy because the world looks surreal and weird. It has been going on now for 4 years since I was 44. I have had my eyes tested and been to the eye hospital and it isn't my eyes. I also have a lot of eye floaters as well xx

      Thanks for your reply Sally. You described it perfectly - it's like I'm wearing glasses that are strangely strong and the strength changes often. It's bizarre. Who knew when all this started that we would have so many crazy symptoms.

    Can anyone describe what the floaters look like. And does anyone experience it in only one eye?
