About two months ago I had an episode of acute panic and anxiety that followed marijuana use. My heart rate and blood pressure were elevated for hours and I believe it was some sort of a panic attack. The next morning I found myself in what I can only describe as a "foggy" state. Mentally slow, very sensitive to noise and also my vision had changed.
I've never needed glasses and could always see very well. Since this episode, my distance vision has been fuzzy and I am especially sensitive to lights at night - neon or blue lights more so, for whatever reason. My peripheral vision also seems narrower than it used to be.
I should note that the brain fog has lifted somewhat, but the vision symptoms have lingered. They are aided slightly by trying a friend's glasses
I saw a doctor about possible neurological causes for this vision loss and he didn't think that was the case - he said that neuro. causes would be more like an all-out loss in one eye, or "bad reception" in one or both eyes, floaters, etc... I have none of those. He gave me what he called a "poor man's MRI" and didn't think I had the right symptoms presenting to warrant seeing a neurologist, even though my nerves themselves feel "extra sensitive."
My question is this - before heading off to an eye doc to get glasses, is there a chance that, as the anxiety lifts, my vision will also improve? As I said, I've never needed glasses before this episode happened. I also wonder about the effect of THC on vision.
