here is a really strange thing that happend to me: before my schizophrenia i had normal vision not perfect i still needed “driving glasses” but it was okay i never wore em. but now the weirdness kicks in: when i had my breakdown and was forcefully locked in the hospital i had perfect vision without any problem that i could remember. but once i had been given xeplion the vision drastically became bad even worse than before my illness. so my schizophrenia made my vision better but then it went bad again after i “got well”.

I’ve got black spots and blurs but nothing significant, the eye doctor told me its not serious and it was caused during the stress of my psycosis

I’ve weared glasses all my life.

Mine more attributed to alcohol dependency than schizophrenia, I think.

I make mistakes driving sometimes.

I have glasses and I have glaucoma.

I have astigmatism and abnormally low vision, something like 40/200 in both eyes. Both my eyes are actually different, the left eye having far-sighted tendency & the right eye having near-sighted tendency.

While definition is very bland, color is very vivid. I also have very good hearing, which I suppose is the flip-side to having bad eye-sight. And yeah, my visual hallucinations are near constant with SZ, whereas the audial hallucinations are infrequent and random.
