Well like I hAve worries about my vision too. Blurred vision sometimes, sometimes feel like I'm in a dream (snowy vision or like cloudy) like you say still kinda hard to explain. Then I see black dots float in my vision. Is this what you experience?

Hi anxietyprisioner5, I very rarely NOT feel weird vision. Blurry, like I am seeing things in a dream state. I too had been diagnosed with extreme anxiety as well as high blood pressure for which I am on medication. The vision was like that before any meds. I realize now that it is just another symptom of anxiety. More likely from the vessels in our eyes squeezing tight and yet with OK vision. I feel when I don't focus on it, I forget. Other than that, it's with me everyday. Hope this helps some.

Hi anxietyprisioner5, I know you worry. I use to worry too. Take for instance, I just got back from grocery shopping today. Within minutes of being in the store, my right eye got blurry, watering constantly the whole time. I remember thinking, hope I can drive home like this. I got in the car, a song came on that I use to like and lo and behold it wasn't until now reading your post that I remembered my eye had been so blurry. It's gone for now. I not saying it doesn't exist but I am saying that being anxious effects all parts of our body. Not dangerous but annoying. The only difference between us is that I no longer worry about physical symptoms like I use to.

Take care, don't worry be happy!

The blood pressure medicine should be taking care of your pressure. I think of the medication as my safety valve, keeping my blood pressure in a safe range.

There are blood pressure meds that is also used for anxiety..

Are you on any other kind of meds for anxiety? Some of their side effects can be blurry vision. Also what does the eye doctor say about it?

he says my eyes are perfect

Jax78, throughout all my anxiety years, seeing a black blurry dot moving across the ceiling as I move my eyes has happened many times. It may go away for a while and then it's back again. I've had it the past several days. I do not get frightened anymore because it goes away after I blink.

Years ago, I was known to see blood red spots on the wall and the ceiling. Found out those were migraine precursors. As long as you have your eyes checked, it's just something we may have to contend with.

People with anxiety are hypersensitive,everyone has what you described but they aren't looking for it. Hard to but true! Our minds are great at distractions so we don't really have to deal with things in our life that are sincerely bothering us. Instead our mind focused on benign symptoms like black dots in our vision. On you truly start to believe this, you'll see how quickly weird symptoms go away. I know because in living proof!

I haave experienced all the symptoms you've mentioned. Iv had blurry vision and what look likI floaters in my vision. Been to eye doctor had my eyes tested everything is healthy . Honestly since iv become less anxious it has gone away and haven't noticed it all . Only on days I'm anxious or get no sleep. Anxiety can definitely mess with your vision. It's hard to belief I had many sleepless night and horrible thoughts with these symptoms but ignored them and they are started to go

I can relate anxietyprisioner5, Most people who have anxiety disorder experience this. It's annoying to say the least and unless you know what causes it, it can be down right scary. It is not harmful or dangerous. It is caused from the over tensed tight head muscles due to our fear. These muscles are also in the eyes and when tight cause a blurry intense sight. Sometimes just blinking or lightly swish you finger over the closed eye lid will help for a little while. But until you completely relax, it continues.

You will find it more prominent when driving or shopping because the stimulation of so much to take in makes us anxious and the muscles clamp down once again. The pupils can dilate causing that weird feeling in both eyes. It is a normal reaction to stress and that is why the eye doctor does not see anything wrong.

Hope this helps some in understand what anxiety can do to us.

I feel what you’re feeling I started experiencing it when I was like 17. Idk wat it is

Hi I'm new to this community and I feel the same! Do you mind sharing more about how your vision feels?

Reply

I have the same thing and it freaks me out I have random panic attacks I've had thing thing for a long time and I'm still not used to it and it doesn't help when I have it during school

Reply

Hi I think I know what your trying to explain, the weird vision sounds like you could have depersonalisation,derealisation if you look it up and see if this relates to your problem, I suffer with these conditions and it's hard to explain when you don't know what's going on, I hope this helps and makes sense to you take care

My eye issues are weird too. It feels like my pupils are expanding and everything is bright & like super real. Kind of looks cartoonish at times. I also have the black dots & im glad I stumbled upon this post because for such a long time I thought that was something serious. Well now I'm going to stop worrying about that. Also the gel in my eyes are broken from an accident years ago. I will constantly see floaters but my eye doctors say my eyes are fine. The pressure is fine and everything looks good.

Everything has been ruled out for you if it was something serious. You had an MRI which shows picture segments of your brain and everything came back fine. Your eye doctors said your fine too.

You are probably just experiencing anxiety. My eyes are constantly feeling weird. My right eye feels numb all the time & feels like its going to explode. I just keep telling myself I'm OK. I go to see a neurologist in october.

I know exactly what you mean. I have the same exact thing. I try to ignore it and ignoring it helps sometimes but O get a lot of headaches due to my vision issurs w Anxiety. It could be derealization but I got over my derealization and my vision is still konda weird. I hope you worked it out. Im currently recovering from severe anxiety so if you got over it then I have some hope for myself.
