My father had blury vision and it turned out he had diabetes. Not saying that is the case here, just pointint out that ignoring it can be fatal. Honestly if you have major vision problems (like you are claiming right now) you should go get checked out by an eye doctor.

Besides, you really can't game or watch too much TV. I've done 24hr gaming sessions before (and I'm sure others have done longer) with no vision problems other than tired eyes. Now, maybe if you'd claimed you've gone a week on 2hrs of sleep per night, then I'd just tell you to get good sleep.

I went to the doctors, i did a blood test because my gran' dad has diabetes so hes ordered a blood test to be safe. didn't get the results yet though because my appointment was changed many various times.

And trust me... i've played ALOT of games the past few months, even more so recently with WKC, BS2, SO2, and coming up SO4 etc...

Basicly my doc went on vacation on me and hes gone for a month... im considering urgent care but im known as somewhat of a.. "Hypochondriac" there so...

I dunno' all i know is the double vision has gotten so bad now that even squinting isn't as effective as it use to be. the muscles around my eyes always hurt to... due to strain i assume.

And i refuse to use my glasses, even if it makes my sight 100% clear, because i here it jus' makes things worse... damn greedy eye doctors.

well, there is your main problem right there. Not wearing corrective lenses when you have bad sight causes major eyestrain. I get massive headaches (because my vision is so bad) if I have to go without my glasses for a while. Also, there is no possible way that wearing them can cause your vision to get worse, that is just crap. All they do is adjust the way light enters your eyes (which is the same thing your eye already does).

Honestly, if it is just tired eyes, 1 day of real resting (sleep, not staing at things) and wearing your glasses will really help.

Ah, you to huh?

Well, how come when i stimulate my eye balls ala' touching them (not inside outside via massage-like motions) it seems the blur and double vision both go away, til i let go that is and it goes right back to straining again.

Grr... guess i'll have to use it though because this double vision is highly bother-some. oh and wtf @ reder shades of color in one eye while greener in the other?
