Blurred Vision after Exercise

I'm not so sure. I generally stay pretty hydrated and had water with me. The fact it's in both eyes seems to suggest it's coming from the brain? I also got the headache the guy's are describing above within another half hour. I had even dropped some electrolytes and nurofen after reading the post. Curious. I guess I'm trying to rule out mini-strokes etc. Might go and see the doc anyway and see what they say.

As others have said, it sounds like the aura phase of a migraine - google 'scintillating scotoma'. I used to get this regularly (2-3 times a month), sometimes when my blood sugar was low but other times there wasn't an obvious explanation. I had an MRI scan (all clear) then went on medication (beta blockers) to try and stop it happening but didn't like the side effects so decided to just live with them instead. I have no idea if this is related, and the doctor doesn't seem to know either, but about 18 months ago I discovered I was anaemic and started taking iron tablets. Since then, I get the visual thing about once every 3 months if that.
