Hi all 🤗
Was just wondering if anyone else has had vision problems with Anxiety
I don’t seem to be able to see as well even though 9 months ago l had an eye test
I seem to get a little bit missing or zig zag shimmers at the edges
Anyone else ever had this ?

I have some problems too, due to blurred vision side effects and also being over 40.

Hi, this is something I get too. I have anxiety and it can give me blurred vision in my right eye. Vision feels ‘wrong’ and when I cover each eye I notice that the right eye is slightly blurred. When my anxiety subsideso does the blurred vision.

From time to time I also get migraine auras. It’s a kind of flashing multi-coloured zig-zag in part of my vision. Lasts between 5 and 30 minutes and I take non-prescription meds as soon as it comes on and close my eyes, or sleep in the dark if I can. Keep hydrated with water all the time. That helps me.

Anxiety keeps me awake. At 54 without enough sleep all body functions are impaired...vision chief among them cognition, memory. It is awful. If i could sleep solid every night with no nightmares or anxiety i think i will have won half the battle.
