When I close my eyes and squeeze them, then when I open them again, I get clear vision. Why is this?

When I close my eyes and squeeze them, then when I open them again, I get clear vision. Why is this?

Possible dry eyes: The most common reason why people can have vision that blurs in and out is dry eye. While the eye is open, the tears evaporate, drying out the cornea surface and blurring the vision. Squeezing the eyes closeed causes a slight tearing response which lubricates the cornea, smoothing its surface and improving the vision. An easier way to achieve this is to use artificial tears 3-4 times per day. ...Read more

If i close my eyes really tight, my vision kind of greys out when i open them, why is that?

If i close my eyes really tight, my vision  kind of greys out when i open them, why is that?

Reduced blood: If you close your eyes really tight, not only does it make the photoreceptors in your eyes more sensitive to light, but you may also be compressing the blood vessels. This would have the effect of overstimulating the photoreceptors, causing you to have funny vision for a few seconds - grey, funny lights, etc. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Why do my eyes look half open all the time bern like this all my life but i hve had my eyes checked numerous times 20/20 vision?

Possible protrusion: The forward position of the eyes in their sockets can be such that it appears as if the eyes are open, or staring. This can run in families and this might be your case since you say it is lifelong. If it is changing, it could be due to dysfunction of the thyroid system which you should have checked. ...Read more

I slept in colored contacts. My eyes burned & watered really bad. I couldn't open my eyes for awhile. Now my vision is horrible. Will my vision come b?

Probably keratitis: People who wear contacts are at higher risk of inflammatory and infectious keratitis. Your description sounds typical of patients i've seen with keratitis. I would recommend seeing an ophthalmologist asap. I would definitely stay out of your contacts until being seen. ...Read more

Pressure on eyes and when I close my eyes, look down and open eyes I get bad double vision. Is this concerning or just something small?

Pseudotumor cerebri: The double vision can be caused by the high spinal fluid pressure affecting the sixth cranial nerve which controls one of the eye muscles. Frequently changes in posture can lead to transient disturbances in conduction along the swollen optic nerves and lead to blurry vision. ...Read more

Are dry eyes common while taking Gabapentin causing my vision to be really blurry. I do have contacts in my eyes.

Dry eyes and blurry : Vision can occur with gabapentin use, although they are not "common", per se. Because you wear contacts, you may want to first try a new pair (if they're disposable), &/or try rinsing your lenses, or taking them out for a period of time. If ur vision/dry eye symptoms do not resolve, schedule a visit with ur doc, who can evaluate & advise/treat & discuss whether gabapentin is implicated. Be well! ...Read more
