i am having problems with my vision, i very frequently have either blurred vision or everything seems hazy
i have been to my doc to check this out and she cant seem to find anything wrong
is this another peri symptom
dear chill java
yes I have the hazy vision and have had it for some months and I have just been confirmed by my doc as being in perimenopause. Its kinds of shimmery sometimes when I look at objects and I find it difficult to stay too long on the computer, My friend is an optician and she can find nothing wrong and my MRI brain scan came back negative too. I think it is linked to the perimenopausal dizziness that is so common. I liken my vision to sometimes being like when you see heat haze and it goes all swimmy.
I recently had bloodtests (which is when I found I was on peri and all was normal except the FSH hormones. My glucose and thyroid levels were normal as was my blood count. Its got to be linked to hormones as everything else appears normal.)

Thank God that perimenopausal symptom has almost completely passed. I remember when I began having that hazy vision issues. At home it wasn't as noticeable as when I was outdoors and especially in stores. I also had my eyes examined multiple times and my vision is good. It had gotten to the point where I could not look at the computer monitor for any length of time without my vision becoming blurred and my eyes became watery. I think taking flaxseed, borage, and primrose oil helped. This too shall pass .
For some reason, this happens to me each day after lunch. My visions gets blurred, my eyes twitch really bad, and I just want to go to sleep. Since I work full-time, I can't do that. I will tell my doctor about it at my next visit, and see what he says...
I particularly had problems with my vision in stores too. When I tried to focus on the shelves I felt so dizzy and a couple of times I had to quickly get out as I felt myself ready to pass out and my head literally spinning. The last few times have been ok but its worse during my period definitely
