Vision problems and adhd

I was just diagnosed with mild astigmatism in both eyes, where I was diagnosed astigmatism years before in one eye and I never learned the benefit. Now I can focus much better without the words floating around like a spacey feeling and getting tired. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and how much better your focusing became? I would also encourage other to look into it who haven’t responded much to stimulants. Also have an interesting read about visual problems and adhd correlation.

Recent Study Shows Links Between ADHD and Vision Problems

Re: Vision problems and adhd

I had thought to open such a thread. I have astigmatism+myope in both of my eyes for at least 15 years.

Re: Vision problems and adhd

Interestingly the Dopamine pathway also plays a part in eye development.

Not surprised, my energy levels can still highly affect my vision.
