Blurry vision at sea

Something wasn’t right. The text on my iPhone screen was fuzzy. I asked other people if they could see properly after spending time at sea. For them, there was no problem.

Dr. Google became my friend.

I determined that scopolamine can have some nasty side effects including blurred vision, short-term memory loss and hallucinations. This may explain why I introduced myself to a member of our crew twice in the same evening.

Yesterday was a lay day – a day off. I removed the scopolamine patch and my eyes have now recovered.

Today I am sailing without scopolamine. I am relying on pressure point bracelets instead. Let’s hope they work.
