Hello I was wondering if any of you had experienced a change in your vision that has been pretty permanent.

I have shimmery vision, BFEP where I see thousands of nats in my vision and I have been told that is normal and to get used to it. Ive had it for 3 years now and its just hard but I know that I maybe normal

I also see halo's at night around street lights and sometimes around lights indoors, not all lights just sometimes around a couple and If i get close to them the halo dissapears??

DO i have hppd ??-- Never done lsd, or shrooms, just marijuana.

Does anybody else have halo's thanks :)

Halo's around lights are usually a sign of glaucoma, or perhaps just a general astigmatism that can be corrected with glasses. Or it could be a sign you're a migrane person. Really any number of things, but I'd go to an eye doctor if you haven't in the past year.

Doctors said eye looks completely healthy

I did get a new pair of glasses a couple of months ago but I've had these halo's ever since I had a huge/bad panic attack.

I've had only 2 migraines in my entire life when my vision went kind of bonkers but I've had halos ever since the panic, not the migraine. Last one was about 8 months ago.

That's very interesting. I doubt marijuana would cause that, as it has never really hurt anyone in the history of mankind. The panic attack is more likely. Maybe a visit to a neurologist would be better or a neuropsychologist. They can really pinpoint the part of your brain that is all mucked up.

While this isn't a 'classic' presentation of anxiety you're definitely made more than appropriately aware of subtle visual variances. I have exactly the same disturbances you have, although I know I've had them my entire life and because of this have never it has never been a source of anxiety for me. Trust your doctors. Mine has not progressed and I often forget I have any trouble at all. I do not think this indicates any kind of deterioration in your case.

Believe me, as a person with diagnosed eye conditions,  eye docs don't miss big ugly eye conditions.

the BIG clue to what is going on is when you say:   ....ever since I had a huge/bad panic attack .

Panic attacks cause all kinds of weird things with the body.   In your case, and imo, what is the most logical explanation as to why this is still happening to you is that when it happened--either consciously or subconscious--it scared you.  From then on you are looking for it ---again whether you realize it or not.  You are monitoring your vision.  It is no different than a person who twitches or who is having palpitations.

You can certainly see a neurologist.  But my opinion is this IS a product of your anxiety disorder.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state
