If you are going through a particularly busy time of life, it is common to experience stress. There are a number of ways stress can manifest itself in the human body, including exhaustion and increased/decreased appetite. For some people, stress can also can affect the eyes.
The mechanism behind why stress causes eye problems is slightly complicated. When a person becomes stressed, their body begins to produce a variety of hormones that increase heart rate and reduce blood flow to the extremities. These changes occur because the brain interprets stress as indicating a threat and as a result prepares to take action. Sometimes referred to as “fight or flight” response, this reaction by the body is not helpful in response to anything but a physical crisis.
