What Is It When Someone Has a Vacant Look in Their Eyes?

Question by Wayne: What is it when someone has a vacant look in their eyes?
I’ve been noticing that there are some people who have a vacant look in their eyes and seem to be a bit distant. Is this a sign of mental illness or drug abuse? What type of mental illness would it be?

Best answer:

Answer by Micki 48
People who are borked out of their mind on drugs can have a vacant look. Some antipsychotic medications can cause a person to have a vacant look. Any mental illness that causes a person to lose touch with reality can cause a vacant look, like schizophrenia. And some people can have a vacant look in their eyes simply because they are wrapped up in their own thoughts and not paying attention to what’s going on around them.
