Whether you have 20/20 vision or wear corrective lenses, you may experience blurry vision at any given moment. Blurry vision is essentially a loss of clarity in your sight causing objects in your line of vision to appear hazy or out of focus. Blurry vision could be the result of eye strain, an eye condition, eye injury, or a hidden medical issue. A comprehensive eye exam at Avery Eye Clinic can help determine the cause of your blurry vision, so you can get the appropriate treatment. If you are experiencing blurry vision and live in or around Huntsville, The Woodlands, or Conroe, schedule an appointment with one of our eye doctors today.
Causes of Blurry Vision
The following are some of the common causes of blurry vision:
- Wrong eyeglasses or contact lens prescription
- Refractive errors in the form of myopia, farsightedness, or astigmatism
- Eye diseases or conditions such as dry eye, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts
- Migraine headaches
- Eye floaters
- Eye injuries
- Overuse of contact lenses
If you are suffering from blurry vision, see our eye doctors at your earliest convenience.
The Importance of Eye Checkups
Eye strain is a common cause of blurry vision, especially after spending hours on your computer or hours watching TV. In most cases, blurry vision caused by eye strain goes away on its own after resting your eyes for a while. If your vision remains blurry or grows worse after a few days, contact one of our ophthalmologists for a checkup.
Your blurred vision could mean you need to update your eyeglasses prescription. If you don’t wear glasses, it could be a sign that you need them. Blurry vision could be due to an undetected eye disease or condition like glaucoma or macular degeneration. If left untreated, these conditions can cause permanent vision loss. By diagnosing these eye diseases early, your ophthalmologist can provide treatment that slows down the progression to preserve your vision.
Sudden symptoms of blurred vision could also be due to a hidden medical issue such as diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, low blood sugar, or stroke. These problems require immediate medical attention. Other symptoms to watch out for are eye pain, double vision, loss of central or peripheral vision, and eye-bleeding or swelling. Any irregularities in your eye health or vision should be reported to your eye doctor immediately.
