Today it happened again, 3rd time in my life.
I was walking the dog in the park, everything was fine, felt fine, nice weather, sunny, slight breeze to refresh.
Then BAM.
The best way i can describe it, an old old film. You know, like a 30's film on one of those big rolls. When it reaches the end, or even i think at the start, The picture jogs all over the place, left to right, up and down. Really fast and uncontrollable before it stabalises itself. Do you understand what i mean?
Well that, but with my vision. Feeling perfectly fine, I could still hear everything etc, nothing felt wrong other than my vision seemingly going crazy. I didn't feel dizzy, I didn't feel like i was going to pass out. Although i did feel like i was going to die, but I put this down to immediate panic attack after strange occurrence.
I felt I had to concentrate really ******n getting my vision to behave itself, eventually after about 5 seconds (although it felt like an eternity) my vision stabalised.
My vision still felt a bit "odd" afterwards, up until i managed to get a nap this afternoon. Now i feel fine.
My gf's mother met me on the way from the park and took the dog home for me as I didn't feel in control of what might happen. Fear of it happening again. She said i looked ghostly white in complexion. This may or may not have been due to panic attack.

I looked in the forums for anyone else having this, but couldn't find anything. Maybe i didn't search hard enough.
It was kinda like rapid eye movement, or extreme dizziness but without any dizzy feeling in my head, just purely eye. I'm so confused.
It's happened twice before, once sitting at a computer at work. I turned my head round after talking to someone and it happened.
Another time while watching tv, after having something to drink and turning my focus back to the TV.
3 times, all different times, nothing binds the 3 together to allow me to come up with a cause.
Today, i'd been awake 3 1/2 hours after 6 hours sleep. I hadn't eaten anything (never a problem with me). I am meant to wear glasses for astigmatism in both eyes, but the dog ate them recently so haven't got a new pair as of yet. The sun was out, but not boilling hot, quite a nice breezy day. That's all i can think of. So 99.999999% of the time, I'd be fine.

Any help would be excellent.
