A 21-year-old member asked:

My pediatrician says I don't need to worry about my children between the ages of 2 years and 18 years old having iron overload. He says it's an "adult onset" disease; is this true?

Worry about iron: You must realize that your doctor is talking about safe nutritional doses of iron for the kids. One of the common poisoning that occurs in children is iron, usually in the form of candy like multivitamins which are now phased out. Growing children and menstruating women need adequate iron on a daily basis. Other adults do not usually need much iron unless they are anemic due to iron deficieny.

Can panic attacks cause temporary vision loss?

Maybe: Panic attacks can be very scary. Usually your heart races you perspire and breathe hard. If your blood pressure falls, your vision could be constricted and you may black out. You need to see your doctor right away to confirm these are indeed panic attacks and not something more serious and you can seek help for these.

Did anyone ever get blurry eyes or double vision from a slight concussion?

Dr. Andrew Shatz
Ophthalmology 26 years experience
Yes: A concussion is similar to a bruise of the brain, and it can cause it to temporarily lose the ability to keep both eyes working together. If the double vision is constant, you should be evaluated by an eye doctor or general doctor.

Is it possible for your eyes recover from blurry vision?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Theodore Wu
Ophthalmology 22 years experience
Blurry: Yes. It depends on the cause. For example, if you are having a migraine, the vision usually recovers after the headache goes away. If your eyes are dry, artificial tears can help the vision recover. If your blurred vision lasts more than an hour, call your local ophthalmologist.
