Seeing a grid in the morning

Discussion in 'Optometry Archives' started by I.M. Provement, Sep 23, 2003.

  1. I do not know where else to find information on this "vision-issue".
    On some mornings, I wake up and for a minute or two, I see a grid of
    intersecting lines which fills my field of vision, whether my eyes are
    opened or closed. Then it goes away.

    My only concern is that I once saw a special on tv about a boy who was
    seeing lines and it turns out he had a growth inside of his brain.
    I do not want it to be such a case and I usually chalk it up to sinus
    pressure.

    Has anyone heard or read about seeing intersecting lines in the
    morning?
    Thanks.

    Yeah, I get that, too. My eye doc said it was shadows from an overley
    engorged blood vessels in the retina when waking up, or something like that.
    He wasn't concerned and knew of the phenomena.

    You should probably go get it checked out, though, just to be sure.

    Thanks,
