    Ok for the past few days I've not been able to read more than a couple of lines on paper because everytime I try to focus on it the words move about and it's pretty impossible to make out. It's starting to really worry me. If I'm reading off a powerpoint in a lecture or my computer screen I'm really having to concentrate hard but it's not impossible and the words don't move as much. Anyone know what this is? I tried googling but got no luck and seeing a dr is pretty impossible here at uni. I am on medication atm but I've been taking it a fair few months so I don't think it's that.

    I have this slightly and i was given a "special" piece of sheet of laminated see through paper thing. you place it over your work and apparently its meant to help you concentrate. they test you with different colours to see which works the best, pink was my best. but to be honest i didn't find it made a difference but i know some people who always use them and can't read without them.

    What medication are you taking? Taking it for any length of time is no guarantee of not having side effects. And if you are having problems with your vision then make an appointment with the optician, it will be much easier than the GP and if they spot a real problem they can refer you further. You should also have an emergency eye clinic/infirmary/walk in centre in your area.

    I think so. I drink quite a lot of water maybe 6 or 7 pints a day.

    I've never had this problem before so why would it just come about? Have you always had it slightly?
