No, this does not have to do with the kind of R.E.M that involves one with sleeping. I'm not sure when, but sometimes, my eyes rapidly move around the room, and I lose vision for but half a second to a second, and with a blink they are back to normal. I haven't any clue as to why this is, but allow me to delve more into description:
Basically I wear glasses, but I'm not too sure about my prescription, just that I can't see far. (I get nearsided and farsided mixed up, but I can't see far) Other than the fact I feel the glasses don't help improve my eyesight at all, I wear them on a daily basis otherwise I get Major Migraine Headaches which I've had since birth. My main worry is the fact that I know peoples eyes aren't supposed to what I say "Shutdown and Restart". When I say this I mean, my vision blurs, my eyes rapidly move around the room, and I lose focus.

Anyone able to tell me what's going on with my eyes, and if prescription glasses will ever help my eyesight get better to where I don't need them anymore?

Thank you in advance. :)

  • It sounds more like something is going on inside your brain - the part of the brain that controls your eyesight and eye movements. Are you a cell phone user or do you use a cordless phone? Maybe you have underlying electrosensitivities? http://www.ei-resource.org/illness-information/related-conditions/electrical-sensitivity-&-hypersensitivity/ Also, Lyme and some of the common coinfections (like babesia and bartonella) like to hang out in the eyes/brain, and the tests are not accurate at all. You can search symptoms on Lymenet, or even post your story there - they'll help you. Again, the tests stink, so you'd need to post that you are seeking a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor. Good luck! http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.phpI do use cell phones as well as cordless phones, but not often do I use them. I don't really think it is electrosensitivy, however, I'd like to explain a little more. When this kind of "spell" occurs I am possibly focusing on something and randomly, my eyes rapidly move left to right multiple times before I blink, in which they "adjust themselves" and my eyesight returns to normal, however when they rapidly move back and forth, my vision blurs for at least a split second (in which they rapidly move it usually is a split second and then I blink) and after I blink my eyesight is normal. I hope this helps delve into what the problem is.
