Josh Hamilton Vision Problems Were Caused By Excessive Energy Drinks and Caffeine

Josh Hamilton, who mysteriously had vision problems last week, causing him to miss a few games – and causing the internet to wonder – is fine. He’s back in the lineup tonight. What happened?

Rangers officials said that Hamilton saw an optometrist and was diagnosed with ocular keratitis, a drying of the cornea caused by too much caffeine and energy drinks. The team reported that Hamilton feels better.

Oh. Glad I was a Red Bull & Vodka drinker in my 20s, and a coffee drinker in my 30s, instead of both at the same time. Could have been deadly. [ESPN Dallas]
