For the past 8 month's i have been seeing trails of objects.

If i wave my hand i see a trail of my hand go back and forth intill i stop waving it.
I see it on objects to. Anything in motion I can see a trail following the motion! Or when I walk into a dark/dimlight room I can see a trails of the door frame coming out of it! It is pretty scarry.

anywhere it's dim or dark I can see the trails (Specially when the background is dark in a dim light).

Any one knows what it is? I had the eyes checked by three different eye doctors so far, anything according to them is normal! Have done MRI of the brain which came normal as well. Help!!! What is this? anyone having the same experience?

Hello and welcome!

I am sorry to hear of your confusing eye/vision issues. Problems with the eyes can certainly be an anxiety symptom. Have you had other anxiety struggles, prior to this?

Is this a constant problem, or transient?

...and finally, you don't mention a headache...but have you considered a silent migraine as a possible cause?

If you practice self help, (see our Resources at the top of the main forum page here for great material) and you find relief, you'll know this was indeed anxiety related. So this is worth a try.

I hoped you find the answers you need soon!

Hei Scaredy Cat
thank you for your reply. I am not sure is this vision problem is related to anxiety! but to answer your questions, this vision issue has been a constant problem during this 8 months (I can say that it got worse in time from the first moment I noticed the trails in my vision). Yes, I sometimes get headache! I also have tingling foot heel for like 2 years now! and recently have got somehting similar to reynaud! my feet toes and heel get very cold (white) when I walk for a short time in cold weather!

I never had this symptoms 8 months ago except the tingling foot heel which started 2 years ago!

N.,

I would ask your doctor about the possibility of migraines. The symptoms can be pretty significant...and the headache can be anywhere from absent (silent) to moderate...to severe. Everyone has a somewhat unique experience with what they feel.

That along with practicing Stress Relieving Exercises should help you pin-point the cause of your issue.

Best wishes, and keep us updated,

Thanks Scaredy Cat! I will go through the Materials you mentioned and excercise them, for now I think it is the only way to deal with these stupid symptoms all over my life.

I almost made a new thread about this, because I also need some answers! My eyes have been checked to be fine, outside nearsightedness and astigmatism, but they're not extreme.

For the last 2+ months I'm having the same issue, and I honestly can't cope with this.

Same description. I see a translucent type trail of what ever the object is, trailing behind for a second until it catches up. If I move my hand for example, to the left and right while I focus on the background behind my hands, I see it. If I focus on my hand and watch it move, it doesn't do it. It's only motion (not extremely fast, but mild) in the peripheral when you're not focused in on what's moving.

It's even ruined watching t.v or using computer to a certain degree because people moving their hands and such, you can see some type of blur/trailing that doesn't look right and makes it obvious what you're seeing isn't what you used to see.

Can anxiety cause this? It seems odd that it could, as this is a 24/7 issue, not coming and going which would seem more anxiety like? But I don't know.

To Nana, has yours got worse over the 8 months? The same? Did it just pop up from nowhere? Do you have nearsightedness and astigmatism as well? I started seeing star-bursting from light sources around same time this developed, so I know my eyes in some way changed, but don't know if there's a correlation. Did you ever have sore eyes, or any issues with the eyes leading up to the sudden onset?

Hei Clemxiii

It is sad that you are suffering this as well! your description is exactly the same as what I am experiencing.

To answer your first questions; I feel like it got worse from the first month I noticed it, it used to be visible only in some specific type of lights/places and at night in the begining, but now, I can see it almost everywhere! in the kitchen, bathroon, bedroom, shops, office, and as you said when I watch TV.

Second answer, I started to have this problem all by sudden 8 months ago. I used to feel some muscle spasm/pressure around my eyes before going to sleep for a short period of time (like 2 weeks/dont remember), then I started to notice this trails! however I am not sure if these two are related or not!

third answer, I did eye lasik surgery 4 years ago to remove glasses, my eyes has been very fine afterwards until 8 months ago, just used to have some sort of dry/sore eyes in the mornings after the surgery which could get better by eye drops ! Have been at a surgeon recently to check if this is related to that eye surgery but according to him everything in my eyes look fine and the surgery looks perfect! So, I doubt if this is related to surgery from 4 years ago either!

fourth answer, seems like I have astigmatism (last eye doctor told me), but according the eye doctor this astigmatism is not something that can be corrected with glasses(perhaps irregular astigmatism type)! I didnt have astigmatism after eye surgery any more, I dont know from where I got astigmatism again! so it might be because of astigmatism!?

fifth answer, I dont know what you mean by star-bursting, but I started to have light sensitivity shortly after these trails become visible in my sight! In addition, I started to have a few floaters in my vision shortly after as well! Which was very disturbing in the begining but now I started to get used to the floaters! but this trails I dont think I can or want to get used to them! I work a lot with computers, so I have sore eyes after working with computer yes.

To summarize, my eyes has been changed in some stupid ways during this 8 months, and it is a shame that doctors cannot quide me! I think me and you should try to find out what is wrong with us! I dont think it is anxiety as well! if it was anxiety it was going to happen only some times and not all the times!

Hey Nana,

Very interesting update. I also have been on computer a lot over the last 10 years, many hours with out a break. I wonder if there is a correlation, but seems unlikely aside from perhaps making nearsightedness worse.

What I mean by starbursting is that car lights, lamps, light sources in general, will have rays of light extending off of the source shooting up or down, or to the side, depending on eye issue. This occurred for me in November of 2016 randomly, I also got a few more floaters. I also notice my eyes got a bit more sore easier and if I don't blink frequently I notice a burning sensation. I'm wondering if some eye changes caused this problem. But if it was an eye issue, why is there very little information online about this? Definitely confusing.

I didn't notice these trails at the time, but around late Jan. I noticed it at night with my hand moving across the keyboard seeing a translucent trail. I then became fixated and concerned about it, and started noticing it almost all the time. When I see other people moving their hands and such, or on t.v/movies, I don't necessarily see the trial as clear as when I move my own hands in front of my face, but it looks odd, like not as it should be. Hard to explain for me.

I'm wondering if we're overly fixated on this, which is making us more aware of it. But that would assume we had it all along and didn't notice it? That seems odd to me, since it's very noticeable we would of seen it before I would assume.

On Monday I have an appointment, I will also see if my astigmatism is the type that can't be fixed, perhaps there lies the issue.

Do you also notice other issues, such as negative afterimages? If you look at something semi-bright like your screen and look away do you sometimes notice the image or words are sort of burned into your retina for a 5-10 seconds?

I found a website dealing with Visual Snow and other neurological issues and in their glossary (scroll to bottom of the list) of terms/issues they listed trailing like we describe. Perhaps we could ask questions there.

Hei Clemxiii,

I also don't necessarily see the trial on TV as clear as when I move my own hands in front of my face, and this is hard for me to explain it as well! the same! I also have some sort of starbursting feeling in my vision, seeing light rays coming out of light sources. I also feel my eyes are more sensitive to light...

That is true that there is a little information regarding this trails that we experience, I have been searching a lot but didnt find much! the only thing which is kind of similar and I found on internet is called "Palinopsia", however I doubt if our issue is exactly Palinopsia! But what you describe like seeing afterimages of light objects "for example cellphone screen" and seeing its image for 5 second as memory in your vision is what I also have experienced recently in my vision! specially at night when it is dark! mine is not very strong right now but I see some sort of the images for a few seconds. When reading about Palinopsia I found that this after images is one of the side effects of Palinopsia! Here is a youtube link to the video describing the feeling in Palinopsia ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Va4KhD3WemQ&t=45s )

I have appointment with another eye doctor in 10 days, that I am going to ask him about Palinopsia test! Not sure if there is any test for this but at least I can mention that! Will let you know! However I doubt Our issue is Palinopsia.

I have been working in an IT company with comuters all the times for 3 years now...
Yes ask your doctor if your Astigmatism is curable by glasses or not. Looking forward to hear from you.

Nana

Yes, more specifically Illusioary Palinopsia. I hope it's not this as it seems to have almost no research on it in terms of a fix, because it's some type of neurological issues or visual cortex issue. Harder to fix, so I hope not.

Seems strange we'd just suddenly develop it. Did you just one day notice it and then from there, you saw it throughout the day? That's how mine wen't.

Has yours got worse or stayed the same the last 8 months? Do you notice any Visual Snow as well (static for example in your vision, typically when it's dim light or dark). Almost like there is a translucent mesh in a way, taking up the air. I hear many see "noise" because our eyes don't just register pure black else things would look cartoonish. But perhaps we're experiencing a more exacerbated form of what is typically "normal" and what the brain typically ignores, and are more heighten awareness.

Hei Clemexiii

Yes it happened all by sudden. I was sitting in a second row of a conference, I noticed when I was focusing on the screen on the board, the person sitting in front of me was not looking normal as always! From that day I started to have the trails in my visionsad. I just had bought a house the day before that, I am not sure if that excitement/shock can be a cause either! Really weird! Don't know what can do!
I don't have the visual snow problem. But the trails has got a little worse since I noticed them first time, I have more issues during night now.
I hope we can find a treatment for this, or at least I hope it does not get worse in time. I have still a long way to go in life and need the eyes!

Hello again. First off, did any of the previous doctors you saw (assuming Ophthalmologists) even try to explain what the trailing might be caused by, or if it is normal? Is some type of motion trailing normal, and perhaps we're just overly aware of it and focus on it and consider it negative so we have a upset reaction to it?

I saw an Ophthalmologist today as well, thorough eye exam eye was fine. Very minor astigmatism and minor nearsightedness. I'm being sent to a Neuro-opthamolgist for advance testing and discussion.

Do you have any refractive errors? Like this starbursting seen here:

http://visionsimulations.com/galleries/kinds-of-starbursts

Doesn't have to be as intense, but did you notice any type of issue where light sources would show a beam going up or down from the light source?

It seems strange to me that we can't even get a theory or understand is it normal for the eyes to even create this trailing. Strangely, I got a hold of my Dad and asked him to wave his hand slowly over this dark seated chair, and asked him to look past his hand and not focus on his hand, to see if he saw the trail. To my surprise he said he could faintly see it, as it catches up. But he had not negative perception of it, nor would he had even noticed it without me trying to get him to see it. When I describe what it looks like, I have people look at this: https://www.testufo.com/#test=framerates

Have someone you know look at the dark background and let the UFO's go by and if they see a translucent like extension playing catchup with the UFO, that's what we (assuming you too) see.

So, are we seeing something that is normal, that our brains typically block and we don't notice, and for some reason are now in constant awareness of and distress of, making it worse? Maybe there is anxiety medicine that could help with this?

Let me know your thoughts.

Hei Clemexiii

The previouse doctor didnt provide me any good reason for the trails in my eyes! No, they never mentioned this is something normal! they just told me I have to live with this/just wait since they can not treat it with glasses or surgery! (I am not sure even if they understand what I see, but next eye doctor I am going to show him some photoes/videoes kind of similar to what I see).

I dont think what i see is normal! if that was normal I would not notice it just by sudden, I see something like a narrow light dancing with the motion wherever the motion goes. If it was normal I would not notice that I assume.

I see the starbursting only when I blink, if I look at the light source/bulb and then blink, I see the light rays comes down of it. Do you have Starbursting? my main issue is not this, my main issue is just the disturbing trail following motions.

I dont think what your dad see is the same as what you see. I also asked my boyfriend to do that, to him it was something normal as well, because it is not disturbing for him, or it is just similar to what we used to see before.

I have not been asking many people I know about this, I feel like they dont understand what I say, so I just tried to explain it to doctors, but it is good that you ask people to make sure if this is normal or not! What can I say! To me this is not normal as before!

I agree with you that seems like our brain is ignoring something! but I mean, there should be a treatment or medicine for this! I dont understand why doctors have no clue.

What your doctor said yesterday? Thank you for the information, and thanks for not leaving me alone here with this.

Let me also visit the eye doctor and get back to you. I have the approintment next week.

in the link you sent " https://www.testufo.com/#test=framerates " my experience is as below:

When I stare at the middle of the black frame, while the things/objects are moving. I dont have any issue with the one running fast (60 fps), but the other one with 30 fsb again I see a narrow light/hallo is following the object. smile

For me, if I stair at the black background (or put mouse somewhere near mid section and stair at it) and UFO's go by, both of them have the same type of trail I see with my hand or object's close to my eyes. It looks like a translucent blur/semi-resembling like half of the UFO, trailing behind, just like I see when waving my hand. When I look at UFO and track it, non-existent of course.

Does that accurately describe yours too?

It's interesting your BF said he could see it as well if he looked for it. Like my Dad, they don't have NEGATIVE reactions to it. They're not noticing it unless we get them to look for it and they're not reacting bad to it when they do. So, it makes me wonder, are we hyper-aware of it? Because we view it as bad and negative, we focus more and look for it more?

I also found someone years ago on this website post the same thing, did you see this:

http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=9&m=818762


I'm hoping it's not neurological issue, as that will be close to impossible to fix because there's almost nothing about this issue in the medical field (if it's illusonary palipinosia ) for easy fixes/cures. That would mean experimenting with medications and such which I'd prefer not to do.

After your doctor visit, if it doesn't go well, perhaps try to go to a Neuro-Opthamolgist if possible. These would be as close as we can get to understanding our issue.

P.S - Do you notice at all, brief (within a second or less) afterimages of say, if you were looking at or past your hand against a dark surface or in a dim environment, and you quickly move it away (or quickly make a fist) it leaves like a brief image of your fingers in a white/translucent form. Very briefly, but noticeable for me anyways.

Did we lose a few posts? I don't see the last few that were here a bit earlier.

I'll post again though to make sure to get a Optical Coherence Tomography test, it's like an xray of your entire eye, as it might reveal for us something doctors cannot see with the naked eye.

No, I see a narrow light (with the shape of the left side of the UFO) like 0.5 cm far from the left side of the UFO, and the narrow light/hallo is following the moving UFO all the way. It is more visible for the UFO on below that top. Maybe what you see is Normal Clemixiii.

Anyway, are you going to do the Optical Coherence Tomography test ?

Yes, I have seen the old post from 2006. I hope he would update us with this after 11 years.
When I have the doctor visit next week, I will ask him for this test you mentioned. thanks

Yes, I will be doing the test.

I still hope/wonder if this is odd type of astigmatism or something related. Have you tried using pinhole glasses or use something that has holes like .2 cm apart and look through it, see if you can still see this issue. I will be trying as soon as I can.

My theory is it's eye related, and I hope it is.

Have you ever noticed when you look into a mirror, you can see your fingers have a type of ghostly version of it around your fingers, or coming off your teeth, ect.. There's something the mirror has coating wise that causes this. That same visual look, I see that at times, especially in more dim lighting on darker background with movement. I noticed even that in certain lighting conditions I can see beams of light extending off my fingernails, especially say if you're in a car, with light entering, but the foot resting area is more dark and not getting light, I can see that light trail coming off my fingers. If I move it even, It sort of lags behind and catches up, very similar to the issue I notice with being at home and seeing it with motion in just a dim environment.

Somehow I think there's a correlation between everything that stems from when my eyes changed in November 2016, some type of refractive error that popped up.

I hope anyways, as things to do with neurological fixes are seldom easy.

Hei Clemiiix

Never heard about the glasses with holes before. just did a search for them, the glasses look a little strange smile I have heard that some glasses which helps those with migrane might help us with the extra trails as well! however they are not proved to help much. We can always try! They are called TheraSpecs glasses.

I hope so! I agree with you that Probabely it is something related to the eyes, some sort of astigmatism or even I hope that it gets better in time (and I hope even it goes away by its own in time). however we need to discuss all of these possible causes and treatments with eye doctors(we should initiate the discussion), since the eye doctors do not get curious to help based on my experience.

I will update you with the news as soon as i hear soemthing new.

Hei again Clemiiix,

I visited the eye doctor yesterday. He found out that my cornea's surface is irregular and he thinks this can be the reason for the mentioned eye problems! He reffered me to a hospital where I will be checked with surgors who are experts with the cornea and if they all agree I will get a second lasik surgery to correct the irregularity of the cornea!
I asked him how my cornea has changed its shape all by sudden? and he asnwered: in your case it can be a side effect of the lasik surgery that you did 4 years ago, and tyhe cornea has changed slowly during these 4 years.
I am a little relieved now that at least a doctor could find something which according to him seems to be the cause and it is treatable! but I need to visit the surgeon's in hospital before concluding the findings!
So, for now I have to wait to receive the letter from hospital (perhaps it takes 1 month).
Will keep you updated after the next visit.

Hei again Clemiiix,

I visited the eye doctor yesterday. He found out that my cornea's surface is irregular and he thinks this can be the reason for the mentioned eye problems! He reffered me to a hospital where I will be checked with surgors who are experts with the cornea and if they all agree I will get a second lasik surgery to correct the irregularity of the cornea!

Thanks for the update!

Too bad I didn't have lasik too before, so I'd feel confident I have the same cause for this. I wonder if cornea irregularity can worsen and change even without lasik? Since I'm in my mid 20's, maybe eye is still changing, but I don't know.

If you can ask the next time you go in, if it's possible the cornea irregularity can worsen or change even without lasik, I'd appreciate it! I'm still months out myself for doctor visit. )=

I wonder if you had any OCT or one of the minor eye pictures taken years ago? You would of put your face into a device and a bright colored beam would basically scan your eye, which will basically show on a computer, your entire inside of eye digitally. If so, if you get a new one, you could compare the two to see yes indeed there was a change in cornea causing this. Once I get mine done again, I will have the ability to compare and see if there's a difference.

P.S - While I still see the issue, I've noticed that by REALLY trying to ignore it, and when even seeing it not acknowledging it and telling myself ("this isn't abnormal, just ignore it) over and over, it's had a positive affect on my mind. I'm trying to make my brain not focus on it, and it's helping (I think anyways).

Hei Clemexiii

Unfortunately I do not have the previous scan of my eyes! If I had it would be great to compare ! Perhaps changes in my eye cornea is not side effect of lasik surgery! Don't know yet! I asked the eye doctor why my eyes cornea's surface has changed and he said it can change in time in some people. I remember when I was younger each time I was checking my eyes there had been some changes in the eyes number! So perhaps I have unstable eyes that is why my cornea's surface has changed sad , don't know!
I am waiting for the letter from hospital, if I get a chance to visit the experts in hospital soon for sure will ask your question. Can I ask if you are girl or boy?
And I agree with you that we should try to ignore the things in our vision in the waiting time since attention just cause us anxiety out of it which does not help! But we need to continue checking with experts to see if there is a way to stop it from getting worse or treat it completely.
I also noticed that I am getting scared of any motion, for example of i am talking to some one while having eye contact, if the person move his/ her hands while talking I get a weird feeling of being scared of her hands movement ( you know what I mean? ). Are you the same?

Regards
Nana

Hello. I'm male to answer your question.

In terms of the movement, yes I think I may know what you're describing. When talking their hand/arm movement is in your lower peripheral usually since you're looking up, and the motion creating the weird distortion we notice (whether trailing or just some irregularity we can't describe) causes anxiety or negative feelings? I notice this originally when I was upset a lot about it, but since I've been trying to ignore it and not think about it, I've notice a positive change I believe. I don't perceive it as badly, perhaps as if my mind is ignoring it to some degree.

It's still there, without a doubt, so I will definitely not be giving up because it's not something enjoyable for sure.

Hope all is well, has there been any updates on your end?

I was doing a bit better last few weeks, but somehow I've become more focused on it yet again which of course makes it worse. I notice it's very bad right when waking up as well, like the extension coming off of my arm moving in air is way more apparent and longer in terms of the trail. Seems to be only right when waking up, which is odd.
