the green tooth No, you're fine. Btw, I wear glasses/lenses. Maybe this phenomenon has to do with that. Who knows? But it does makes me feel ackward when I get up and start walking instead of waiting until it goes away.

Makes me feel like I've run down with some mental illness though.

just a thought, do you think it could be some kind of a low blood sugar thing? My eyes get weird when mine is low.



Hmm, I don't think that's the cause because I ate some time before it happened today.



But I'll look into it.

Possible, but it can happen when I'm sitting at my computer as usual without doing anything unusual.

Envy Well, see, I have this problem.



Sometimes it seems to me like everything I set my eyes upon are either smaller than usual or a great deal farther away.

In other words, it looks slightly warped.



It doesn't happen a lot of times, but the feeling can carry on for 10-15 minutes if I'm unlucky or 2-5 if I'm lucky.

I went to a optician with this, and he told me that it wasn't a matter of my eyesight, but instead that it could have a neurological cause.



Does anyone have an idea about what this could be?
