I only get it when I accidentally fall asleep in my chair at work and then wake up suddenly. I thought it was a stress thing because I am nervously awaking as I am obviously not supposed to dozing on the job.

Years have passed since your first post of this thread,did you find out what your yellow vision was from? Did it go away by itself?

I came across your post by google searching "yellow vision". I had exactly the same thing you describe for a couple of months. The intense yellow when first waking up was very alarming. So much so that I didn't mention it to my doctor, for fear he would think I was nuts. It is a relief to read this thread and see that several people have experienced the same thing.

I didn't have any jaundice of my skin or eyes, so the yellow vision coming from bile did not occur to me. The weirdest thing with the yellow vision was that it was for only about 5-10 seconds and then it went away. It going away like that made it impossible to evaluate . I thought it was from cataracts, but as someone else mentioned, the yellow would be there all the time, not just when you woke up if it was from cataracts. For me it wasn't every time I woke up but maybe seven or eight times over a period of a few months. Not just yellow, but neon yellow, florescent yellow, shocking yellow.

Fast forward; I had my gallbladder out three weeks ago and haven't had the yellow vision again, so far. I didn't have any jaundice or gallstone attacks, I had some constant pain for years and finally a doctor ordered a scan and advised having my gallbladder out because there were gallstones. After surgery he said that the scan didn't tell a complete story, that my gallbladder was just about full up with gallstones and I was heading towards a ruptured gallbladder if I hadn't had it taken out. I told him that by coincidence, our little 12 year old bichon frise dog had a ruptured gallbladder last summer. The doctor was very surprised to hear that but didn't have anything to say about it. No, the dog and I do not eat the same things. Regarding the yellow vision I have experienced and the dog, at first I thought the dog had terrible jaundice that for some reason only showed up when I first woke up and looked at her. After a few times of that happening I saw the spots on our white bedding, and realized that if the dog had jaundice it wouldn't be as bright as what I was seeing. One day when I woke up, it was just the bottom of her two front paws that were florescent yellow. I thought she had thrown up bile, which she actually does from time to time, and the vomit is close to the color I was seeing when I wake up. There were black lumps in the florescent yellow and I figured it was undigested dog kibble. Being in a half asleep state, I poked at a black lump and the lumps were the dogs paw pads and the yellow was the bottom of her paws! That is how real the illusion was.

I don't know if there is a connection, but since I haven't had any more episodes of yellow vision since my gallbladder was removed, I believe that my sick gallbladder was what caused me to see bright yellow when first waking up. If I have another episode of yellow vision I will write an update.

Has anybody else here come up with a physical reason for their yellow vision?
