when i yawn and my eyeballs are moist the blurriness goes, but when they dry they get blurry again. dehydration imo.

I reckon when you’re dehydrated your brain shrinks and pulls on your eye tendons and that affects your vision. In fact I’m sure of it

i mentioned i had floaters in my eyes constantly to a Specsavers woman the other day and she looked really worried. I’m pretty sure it’s normal for me though

I’m very short sighted and have natural double vision, so my eyes are blurry ALL THE TIME.

But also, probably, yes?

I woke up so dehydrated one day I couldn’t see properly and couldn’t walk without losing my balance. Actually quite scary

Does anyone get a weird smell in their nose when they’re dehydrated? Not dissimilar to when you get hit in the nose. I get it some mornings and I’m wondering if it is actually dehydration that’s causing it.

I cannot fathom how you can get anywhere close to this dehydrated without having chugged down lots of water in the meantime (unless it’s alcohol induced, obviously). If I go like two hours without drinking substantial amounts of water I feel like I’m shrinking into a human sized raisin
