My eyes went out of focus

All of a sudden my eyes went completely out of focus and I had to sit down. It was very scary but didn't last long. My heart was also racing.

    Do you need to see a GP quickly?


    Would you like to speak with a doctor by video or phone at a time that suits you?

    Our Doctor@Hand service, delivered by Doctor Care Anywhere, offers a doctor appointment by video or phone at a time that suits you.

The answer

You have not mentioned if your heart was racing before your eyes went out of focus. If this is the case and your heart started beating very fast suddenly this can cause your blood pressure to drop and you may faint or experience a near faint, this often does cause visual disturbances. If this does happen frequently I would suggest you see your doctor to have this assessed.
