      I've had something similar to you when on the computer for excessive amounts of time, probably had it when I've been playing games too long too, but never when flying thankfully. I guess if you didn't want to go OTT on fluids you could try some hydration tablets, but the ones I tried a few years ago were pretty awful TBH but they did the job.

      On at least two occasions now I've experienced really painful double-vision when flying my Middle Phase in big winds (30mph plus).  It either turns into a pink-and-black P-38 Lightning or a pink-winged biplane!!  This hasn't happened when flying the Ahi closer in in less windy weather. The first time was a couple of weeks ago flying the west slope off Liddington Castle south of Swindon with the sun in the same part of the sky.  It happened again yesterday afternoon on Uffington White Horse hill with the wind coming right up the bowl from the NW, so not directly into the sun.  This time I'd brought proper workshop goggles as I thought it may have been the pressure of wind on my eyeballs behind my prescription glasses/sunnies, and possibly drying them out, but they made no difference at all.  The only thing I could do once it started was close one eye for a while, then the other, holding the MP out high until the wind had abated enough to come in and round for a safe landing - for this I opened both eyes for proper depth perception! I then had a rest after my my chum who was also flying and photographing had left and drank my flask of hot tea.  When I briefly went up again the problem did not recur, but it was getting too wild (a period of 40mph gusts) to be safe so I landed and finished the session. I later recalled that last year, after too long on the computer one afternoon, I'd suddenly experienced wave-like vision in one side of one eye which went on for about ten minutes - making me anxious that it was some kind of mini-stroke?!  Fortunately the doctor on NHS 111 diagnosed an "Ocular Migraine". When I mentioned all this to another slope-soaring chum, he suggested that on all three occasions I was probably a bit dehydrated.  This makes sense as all three instances were after lunch but before having any late-afternoon tea - digestion uses a lot of the body's available water, denying the brain (of which eyes are a direct external part) sufficient hydration. Solution then will be to keep well hydrated on the slope... and worry about having multiple wazzes on a busy hillside later!!
