Re: vision and anxiety

for me - vision affects include weird pupil activity (?), dizziness, sometimes a little blurred vison. When I was on Lexapro - I'd get floaters and flashers....

Re: vision and anxiety

I get floaters and flashes too. also ocular migraines. Since I can remember while looking at the bright sky I see whats best described as when someone is cooking on a hot grill outside, the area above it is kind of distorted..its clear,and its like its moving(swirling)..I have searched the net for this and can find NOTHING. Im sure/hoping its nothing to worry about considering ive had it so long.But being the hypochondriac I am im obsessing over it!
Ive been to the eye dr. and they dialated my eyes and said retinas were fine!
