I have gone to countless doctors trying to figure out why I have intermittent blurred vision, trouble focusing, while all my eye tests indicate fine vision. I can track a ball moving and then all of a sudden, can't track it any longer, can't make out people's faces, have trouble switching from reading to looking further away. Got on Midodrine because found out I had some blood pooling in my feet during strenuous activity and that helped all my other symptoms, just not the vision issues. Extremely frustrating when you playing tennis great for 20 minutes and then all of a sudden can't track the ball or even make out the server's face especially after I move my head! My doctor just switched me off of Vyvanse and I will now try Ritalin.
