    Question Why is my vision clearer when I lie down?

    Hello,

    I have had spells of blurred vision (and dizziness/lightheadedness) for years. This evening I was feeling unwell during a meeting and lay down on the floor. Suddenly my vision became incredibly clear. After experimentation, I discovered that even when standing up, my vision was much clearer if I tipped my head to one side and also leaned to the side so that my head was nearly horizontal.

    Does anyone have an explanation for this?

    Thanks so much!

    My eye dr told me many years ago you vision can be better when lying down to the decrease in blood pressure and heart rate but as for the other while standing I'm not sure
