Depends: Your examining person will test your vision without eyeglasses and the level will depend upon your basic need for eyeglass correction as well as any pathological defects of the eyes. The acuity level will depend upon how strong these needs are. If you can see as well as your peers, then your acuity will likely be good.

Yes and no: In this procedure, they cut a small slit in your leg to gain access to your femoral artery and vein so there is some pain involved, however, conscious sedation is used so that you're "knocked out" but still awake enough to cooperate if they need to you move in some way so you typically won't be aware of any pain.

Can be other causes: Dizziness with exercise doesn't just happen with inadequate hydration. If a person is well hydrated, and still gets dizzy, her doctor can evaluate. Sometimes there are circulation problems, such as not enough blood flow to the brain under certain conditions or activities. There can be heart problems, or not enough red blood cells (anemia), etc...
