Causes of Blurry Vision

There are several causes of blurry vision. Common causes include refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. However, it could be caused by a more serious eye condition such as glaucoma. An eye doctor on our team should address any blurry vision right away. 

Blurry vision can be temporary or permanent depending on the cause. Refractive errors can improve from updating your vision prescription or getting LASIK surgery. However, severe eye conditions like cataracts can cause vision to worsen over time. It's essential to treat blurry eye conditions at the onset. 

Blurry vision can complicate daily tasks such as driving, reading, and computer work. 

Diagnosing Blurry Vision to Help with Eyecare

An eye doctor from our team can diagnose blurry vision with an eye chart test. We will also review your medical history to assess potential causes.

Who Suffers from Blurry Vision?

Blurry vision is not specific to anyone's age, including children. An optometrist should address any experience of haziness or blurriness. Blurry vision can occur in one or both eyes. 

Blurry Vision and Eye Disorders

Various eye conditions could cause blurry symptoms. They may include:

  • Dry eyes
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Macular degeneration
  • Corneal ulcers
  • Corneal abrasions
  • Conjunctivitis

Aside from refractive errors, blurry vision can be challenging to diagnose. Our team will complete a comprehensive eye exam to determine the cause of your symptoms and provide eyecare. 

Blurry Vision and Health Complications

Eye conditions are linked to good overall health. Blurry vision could be a sign of health complications, including high blood sugar, stroke, diabetes, and migraines. It's also common for pregnant women to suffer from blurry vision.
