Visual problems?
« on: August 12, 2012, 12:40:04 PM »
Hello everyone,
I just wanted to see if any of you guys have visual problems along with your POIS? During an episode I tend to get more blurry vision, visual snow(kind of like static on tv, I usually see the static in all white rooms or in the dark), and I also have palinopsia(where ur brain registers afterimages for too long. Does anyone get any of these visual disturbances during an episode?

yes. I get visual disturbances and sensitivity to bright light. For reference Dr Dexter mentions light sensitivity in his POIS medical paper.
30 years of POIS. Mytelase after O with Iceman breathing technique.

Sensitive to bright light. When I first developed POIS, I think I had some visual "snow" like what charam was describing, but I don't seem to have that now. I wear contacts sometimes for nearsightedness/myopia, meaning I can see excellent close up, but not far away. But that's extremely common and I've had that before POIS, so I can't completely blame it on POIS.

I also have extreme sensitivity to Sunlight for over 30 years, with my version of POIS.

I was diagnosed by a consultant dermatologist maybe 20 yrs back, with "Photo" aggravated seborhaeic dermatitis. Basically, a few seconds exposure to direct sun on affected areas causes a flare up. Creams and avoidance of sun has helped a lot over the years, but I avoid direct and bright sunlight with determination, as it has a very negative effect on my mood also (extremely so during 3/4 day POIS hangover).

I also underwent a series of light de-sensitisation treatments about 15 years back (under the care of same consultant) which improved things a bit more. Basically, I had to take some (special) prescribed tablets and then stand in a machine once per week for 4 wks or so, to get exposed to certain UV lights to then desensitise me. It did a help a good bit also, but I still have to avoid direct sun and over wear sun glasses. A pain in the ass for my family and for me (wearing baseball caps always in Summer) and as I loved the sun as a kid.

1- sometimes, I feel Severe pressure in my eyes that I think it is going to pop out (First time I experienced that, I went to the ophthalmic clinic thinking I had glaucoma)
2- My eyes become very sensitive to light.
3- My eyes accommodate very slowly to things (When you move from near to far Objects and Vice versa)
4- Sometimes, I get blurry vision
POIS is my worst enemy

I too have sensitivity to bright lights and blurry vision, although I don't need glasses to see properly.

I had surgery when I was young to correct the angle of my eyes, so maybe that had something to do with it rather than POIS.

Interestingly, one of the first symptoms I get is sticky eyelids, then the visual snow comes along. Within seconds of O, blinking actually takes a kind of effort, and when I do blink, I get a sort of blurriness in my vision that I have to blink a few times to clear.
Symptoms last 6-7 days. Onset of muscle weakness after 30 seconds. Symptoms include: brain fog, fatigue, depression, pale skin/dark circles under eyes,  digestive problems, difficulty taking a full breath, irritability. NONE of these are present out of POIS.

I have droopy eyes/dark circles and a more inexpressive affect for several days after orgasm.  Frankly, over the past 30 years, I'm 42, I don't recall taking more than 4 days off from masturbation or sex more than 10 times.  I've only recently learned about POIS and think it may be a main cause of my depression, social anxiety, irritability, brain fog, CFS, etc.

I have sometimes thought that my eyes have become smaller. ??? Maybe I was just looking in the mirror without my glasses on.

what the fuzzle.....

why yes, actually. I have a constant static in my vision 100% of the time.

Thanks for asking.

My doctor labeled it "visual migraines".

I was harassed by a boss at one of my old jobs to "quite smoking pot so much" because he assumed my very baggy, dark lower eyelids were a result of marijuana smoking... Frustrating.
Turmeric and Rosemary 30-45 minutes before orgasm for anti-inflammatory and immune support has helped me a lot. Faster and easier than niacin approach.

I wouldn't be surprised if a majority of us have visual snow or static vision to some degree. I remember having visual disturbances at night when I was as young as five years old
31 years old. POIS since puberty. Cognitive and physical symptoms.

During my pois i feel eye pressure and pain in eyes, unable to see as accurately as normally. Artificial lights are flickering in my eyes which feels unpleasant. Some visual snow or something like i think, and more floaters or somehow vision catches the floaters easier, and i am also seeing a black dot, dunno what is it. A very bright line/dot moving across my vision (like a thunderbolt but moves slowly). Dry eyes. An optician enquired if i had any allergies cause interior of my lids were reddish.
