Does anyone else get this after reading for a while?

This seems to have happened quite recently but whenever I've been reading for a prolonged amount of time (with breaks in between) the words seem to move? As my eyes scan across the page the words get larger and then progressively thinner?

It's really hard to explain what I mean but I'd say it was like a sweeping magnifying glass, it's really odd.

Does anyone else get this? I've had my eyes tested recently and apparently there's nothing worse than they'd already said before so I have no idea why it happens.

I suppose I'm just curious as to whether this has happened to anyone before and did it stop eventually?

:rofl:

I mean, I'm 90% sure I'm not drunk at the moment so I suppose it rules out that possibility...

I'll be honest, I know nothing about dyslexia but would it not be constant? This weird thing seems to come and go, mainly after I've had a long day of reading.

Yeah, dyslexia would be more prominent in your day-to-day, and not just when you're tired or have done a lot of reading

Dislexia, Irlen Syndrome, or simply astigmatism or slight hyperopia.
First of all I suggest you visit an optometrist to see if there something wrong with your eyesight.
