Severe eye problems. Is it anxiety ? (2)
« on: December 27, 2013, 10:50:44 AM »
Dear All,

I am wondering whether my current problems are related to anxiety, and to see whether anyone else has or is experiencing the same problem.

My visual problems are:

-Blurred vision
-Double vision
-Strong light afterimage
-Halos around lights
-red, yellow, blue and green seem lighter
-Hazy vision
-Dotty vision
-Eyes burn, sting and feel like there is something in them (Using eyedrops)
-Lights flicker
-Everything seems darker in colour than it should. e.g. objects indoors and everything outside
-I see blue dots and swirling lights when my eyes are closed
-When i close my eyes I can see blue dots and a light swirling
-Vision goes cloudy when staring at a point

Also I feel as though I do not have a brain which works properly, and have been not able to function as I feel as though I am in hell with my head and eyes.

I have had my eyes checked out and they are completely healthy, apart from a slight bit of cornea corrosion. My eyesight is getting worse, but everytime I go to the hospital they say my eyes are fine. It's getting more blurry and I can't understand what is wrong.

Has or is anyone else going through the same thing ?

What you are experiencing is all because of anxiety.. if you don't pay much attention to them, they will pass.
I use to feel those too.. >_<

Hi there Paul,

A few years ago I was having the exact same symptoms...awful floaters, phosphenes, spots in my vision, swirly vision in bright light. It was awful. I got my eyes examined, an MRI with contrast and everything was completely normal! It was all anxiety. I promise you that of you stop focusing on it, they will go away. It will take a little while but they will. If you need reassurance you can always schedule an appointment with a neurologist or an eye doctor. Good luck! And remember to breathe!
