Double Vision.....(or is it) as I wake up - PLEASE Advise
« on: August 25, 2014, 12:43:58 PM »
I believe for the last couple of months at least....maybe longer... I am waking up in the morning or the middle of the night and as I open my eyes, I am seeing images come together (like when you cover one eyes and release you see the two images become (fuse)).   Each time I blink they come together quicker and after a minute or so things look normal.  It does not happen during the day, but I obviously don't like waking up that way.  I'm already a little off balance upon waking util I take about 20 steps or so, but I think that's everyone.  Or at least me over the last 30 something years :)

ANYONE have anything like this or is something sinister potentially going on???  I'm hoping it's just my brain taking a minute to warm up to the thought of being awake.

I made an appointment for an eye exam later today, and almost called on the neuro.......but punched HA in the face for a moment on that one ;)

That sounds familiar... I think it happens to me when I'm really tired, not completely awake and/or really dehydrated.

I think most people can make it happen by putting your hand over one eye and seeing the two objects (fuse).  Mine seems normal from that perspective except when I am awoke.  At which point it seems to slow down pretty good....

This has definitely happened to me during some of my more anxious periods. I'm not sure if it just happens all the time, but I only notice it when I'm anxious, or something about the anxiety makes it happen. As long as it doesn't get worse (i.e. it continues past the time when you wake up) or you start having other symptoms, you should be fine.

I can't see straight and I'm bouncing off walls until I get my first cup of coffee. Been that way as long as I can remember ;)

My eyes take a while to adjust in the morning and I'm pretty sure this is totally normal we just notice it more as we are super aware of everything that goes on in our body because we are anxious!

Dry eye can cause this and so can sleeping with part of the eye on the pillow.
