weird things when i blink
« on: February 25, 2014, 09:44:45 PM »
a problem that is really bothering me is that whenever i blink weird things happen, like its a combination of double image, misalignment, blur. When i blink at just the right way though sometimes the image is very clear. This happens with both eyes and one in individual. I do have to blink abit harder than usual to trigger this crazy image and its better when i blink softly.

I believe its do to axial myopia (and also probably axial astigmatism) and the eye really has lengthened (or deformed). I never had this problem when i had good eyesight. I do not have this problem if i wear a -0.5D or -0.75D minus.

Does anyone else have this problem if you are myopic???

Did you do any of the PVS exercises?

The CRB one got me into the habit of blinking extra hard when I wanted to 'clear' an image. I thought this was how you did active focus but when I finally realised how to do it I realise I didn't need to blink so hard anymore and had to unlearn this habit.

The hard blink would give me a really short glimpse of some clarity but then turn into a mess of blur.

Hi Mailliam,

That funny, my experience is the reverse.  When I look at my Snellen, I often have some mild blur.  But then I take my time, blink a few times, and can read the 20/20 line, and sometimes the 20/15 line. 

I think a temporary "blur" is normal.  But I think that a lot of people get a -1 diopter lens - based on this temporary "blur" that it totally normal. That is why I take the time to check this at home.

sorry i mentioned this problem several times but it really is a serious problem and very umcomfortable. But overall its most likely axial myopia with weird axial astigamtic and when i blink I am changing the shape of the cornea slgihtly. I really do hope this goes away...
