Yes! It can do a lot: of things, besides just vision! It can affect your behavior, your response time, your judgement, your reflexes, your heart rate, and blood pressure, your digestion or indigestion, your stools, sleep, can cause insomnia too. So, it can lead to visual changes temporarily. Try to stay calm, and take a deep breath.
