Check blood pressure: The association with standing sounds like orthostatic hypotension--low blood pressure that occurs with standing and can make you feel lightheaded and give visual symptoms. Check your blood pressure and call your prescribing doctor to discuss with them, they may recommend further evaluation and checking blood pressure lying down and after standing for 3 min in the office.

Blurry vision, drug: Effects of blood pressure drugs can affect the eyes, but the ones you are on are probably due to the positional change on your blood pressure such as a feeling of lightheaded upon standing. These are usually short term but report to your prescribing doctor asa dose adjustment might be needed.
