Ephedrine damaging eye sight?

Eyes always been 20/20 ... recently gone bad and found out I need glasses for long distances etc. Not a problem, but they do make things clearer. I'm 29

Anyway, when I take ephedrine I notice vision sometimes blures very slightly

Just wondering, are the two connected? Or is it just me getting older?

Thanks

    29 mate

    Optician said it's just age, I am slightly short sighted (can't see far away) and have a slight stigmatism in one eye. She said that gymming etc is not to blame, but want to be sure.

    Long term?

    been on clomid and nolva - but I thought that was short term,

    Time on clomid shorter than nolva (use throughout cycles)

    Bit odd to turn myopic at 29 TBH. Late onset myopia is rare.

    and have a slight stigmatism


    It's astigmatism - and it's a common thing

    I wouldn't think they're related TBH, however the eye's getting blurry when you take eph;

    Eph essentially works on your sympathtic portion of your CNS. This causes vasoconstriction. Hypoxia (lack of oxygen in the eye) may result, causing temp blurry vision

    Thanks Adil - you think temporary then?

    Why is this strange at 29 ... a lot of people get eyes bad when they get older ... no?

    thanks

    Yes

    Why is this strange at 29 ... a lot of people get eyes bad when they get older ... no?


    You are probably referring to presbyopia. Presbyopia occurs in 99.9% of people, roughly at 45.

    Prebyopia means that their eye lacks sufficient accomodative power. Meaning they can't focus their vision on close objects because their eye muscles are 'knackered'

    Myopia (what you have) is caused via 3 different ways. The most common is that your eye has become slightly elongated. So the light rays are meeting before they hit the back of your eye. This would mean that your eye has actually grown at 29 years of age. It is possible, but rare

    Just so you know. If your eye grow's by just 1mm (the anterior segement), that equated to a -2.5/3 prescription

    EDIT - spelling

    All very technical ... so in your opinion natural, suppliments, gymming or something else?

    My eyes aren't thatbad, got receipt somewhere - told I don't need to wear for driving etc

    Optician thought was normal ...

    Thanks again mate
