seeing green

Why does everything have a green tint for just a second or two after I wake from a nap?

Probably your retina switching from dark/dim vision system (rods) to bright light system (cones). Not likely to be a sign of trouble.

I have been having the same thing happen. Upon waking from a daytime nap every thing is a strong green colour (like I was looking through green sunglasses) which lasts a few seconds and goes after I blink, really weird.  Im on Venlafaxon  so Ive put it down to it being a side affect of it.
