Alice in Wonderland Syndrome

Micropsia, also named Alice in Wonderland Syndrome after Lewis Carroll's fictional children's book, is a disorienting visual disorder in which humans, animals, and inanimate objects are perceived as significantly smaller than they actually are. The condition affects the brain's interpretation of signals sent from the eyes and not the mechanical functioning of the eyes themselves. What painful neurological condition may, in part, be the cause of micropsia? More...

Micropsia is a change in visual perception caused by swelling in the corneal areas of the eye.

Micropsia is usually a temporary condition that can be caused by several factors. Some types of epilepsy have been known to cause visual distortion. The onset of migraine headaches may be marked by micropsia. In addition, swelling caused by the Epstein-Barr virus has been linked to episodes of micropsia.

In rare cases, micropsia can be of psychological origin. Someone with extreme anorexia might be able to look at a friend and see a perfect figure, but be unable to see such a figure in herself. Visual perceptions affecting body perception are often labeled as body dysmorphic disorder.
