Visually, taking Molly will cause rapid eye movement and blurred vision.
This can result in an inability to focus and illogical thinking. Over time and with extended use a person’s overall cognitive function will suffer.
MDMA, more commonly known as Molly or Ecstasy, is a synthetic drug and one of the most common drugs consumed recreationally today.
The effects of Molly usually begin within about 45 minutes after taking it, and generally last for about 3 to 6 hours.
Molly And Rapid Eye Movement
Molly is known to both alter a person’s perception as well as enhance their mood.
Molly has been known to cause a condition called nystagmus, which is repetitive, uncontrolled eye movements. These movements can occur side to side, up and down, or in a circular motion.
This rapid eye movement can give the user the feeling that their eyes are shaking or wiggling and has been described as very unpleasant.
A person’s balance and coordination are also affected by these rapid eye movements and their depth perception and overall vision can be impaired.
Molly And Blurred Vision
Molly also commonly causes blurred vision to occur in those who take it. In this case, a person’s eyesight will become cloudy or dim and their general vision will be out of focus.

The consumption of alcohol or other drugs alongside molly will make the effects stronger.
Some users have reported episodes of blurred vision lasting for several months after their last dose of molly.
