Vision and distance

I was talking to someone today about these weird vision things that I sometimes experience and have never given a second thought to until my friend said they were strange.

Please bear with me - this is kind of difficult to explain.

Sometimes I can be doing nothing in particular and my vision suddenly alters. I can be looking straight ahead at, say, a picture and it is as though someone has flicked a switch which has moved everything further away from me. The picture that I'm looking at seems as though it is much further away and is smaller, almost like I'm looking down a tunnel and the space between me and the picture has been doubled. It doesn't matter whether I look away, shut my eyes or look at something else the distance still seems to be greater than it actually is.

I don't know whether this makes any sense. It probably only happens 3-4 times a year so it's not frequent but it has been happening for a number of years now so I've always thought it was normal, like it being caused by me being tired.

Does it make sense to anyone? Does anyone else experience this? I don;t like the thought that this is something different to the norm.
