    vision is shaking...

    OoOoOk, this is starting to really freak me out. I am usually infornt of a computer, book, or camera 23 out of 24 hours in the day (I like the 10 minute sleep a day system) and when I am watching a dvd or at a lecture in class, everything starts to friggn shake!! Left to right like somone just stuck a vibrator in my ear.

    If anyone has had this problem (I don't think it is due to fatigue) in terms of eye muscle issues or anything, I would love some insight.

    Then again I guess I could call an eye specialist.

    ugh..

    That sucks man, I don't have that, but I do have something similar. I've had what seems to be Vertigo(dizziness due to tilting of head) for quite some time. It's really annoying and I went to the doctor and it's probably from an ear problem. Its been going away but very slowly. When it first started my vision was shaking when I walked, scary stuff. I didn't want to go myself cause I get very anxious going to the doctors but I think its the best thing to do. I don't think it's anything serious if its not accompanied by other bad symptoms, i.e. vomiting, bad headaches. Go to webmd.com, do a search, then if you need to call the doctors, good luck and hang in there.

    This happened to me back in the old days of Everquest and staying up till 6 in the morning. What I would do is take like a 10-30 minute break every time this happened, with a wash cloth over my eyes damp with cold water and just rest. But I only did this because I was addicted to the game, so the best thing to do would be to just sleep.

    yeah guys thanks so much, I have been trying to get a little mid day shut eye in between classes and it has really been helping.

    But it is strange and this was the problem I even had in sports when I was younger is that I focus too hard. If I am looking at a face I can't take it all in, I am focuses on one single point and the rest of the face is peripherel

    I could probably write a pretty long document (even longer than the one below) about my experiences with computer vision syndrome (aka CVS and yes it is a real term), but here's the short version.

    Despite what alot of people think, CVS is real and for a small group of people it has a much greater impact on your vision that normal. Basic CVS is the usual eye-strain type stuff, and it is usually cured by just taking breaks from the screen. But there is a more serious form of CVS that does not go away unless you're away from a computer for a long period of time (sometimes in excess of a few weeks). For these people, the dizziness, shaking, blurring, etc., is in effect all the time, from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep. It is very rare, and as far as I can tell is is basically undocumented. I only found out about it after going to more neurologists, eye doctors, and other specialists than I care to remember and finally being told about this by a neuro-opthalmologist in nyc. He compared me to the people who can't go into supermarkets because of how the lighting makes them feel sick. They are also a rare group, and they just happen to have an adverse reaction to certain forms of light and patterns. For me, I have this rare reaction to computer screens.

    Now this may or may not be what you have, but if doesn't hurt to be aware of it. And if you do have it, don't freak out. I'm living with it and I've gotten kind of used to it. In the near future I hope to get out of my current 10-hour a day job staring into a monitor and into something that involves only a couple hours of computer use a day, but for now I can live with this.

    In the meantime, take frequent breaks, get some sleep, and see a doctor. This one eye doctor was able to give me eye drops with a steroid in them for the really dizzy/blurry days. They are not for frequent use, but for the tough days they help alot. Look into that. It's called Alrex.
