can anxiety cause blurry vision?

IT COULD: Under situations of extreme fear, pupils can dilate, and it becomes difficult to focus clearly, thus causing "blurry" vision. However, if you do NOT feel anxiety or emotional stress when your vision blurs, need to search for other mechanisms of your visual problems.
