Find out more about blurry vision below.
Causes of Blurry Vision
There are many different causes of blurry vision. Some of them include refractive errors such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. While these are the most common, the problem could also indicate a more threatening eye complication.
Different eye disorders can include blurry vision as one of the symptoms. Eye diseases and conditions include dry eyes, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, keratitis, corneal ulcers, and conjunctivitis.
Health Disorders and Blurry Vision
Your overall health plays a significant role in your eye health. Other health complications such as high blood sugar, strokes, and migraines can cause blurriness. It's also common for women who are pregnant to experience blurry vision.
How Long Does Blurry Vision Last?
There are many causes of blurry vision which affect how long the symptoms will last. For example, blurry vision caused by refractive errors can be adjusted by updating your prescription. However, more severe conditions such as cataracts need to be corrected, or they could eventually lead to blindness.
Diagnosing Blurry Vision
Blurry vision is relatively simple to diagnose. We will use an eye chart test and a slit-lamp examination. We will review your medical history to determine if there is an underlying cause of your blurry vision. Routine eye exams by a qualified eye doctor from our team can keep your eyes operating at peak condition.
Once we perform a comprehensive eye exam, we can determine the best treatment options for your blurry vision. We can help fit you with a pair of corrective contacts or glasses, recommend different medication or eye drops, and suggest lifestyle modifications to help improve your symptoms. We will also schedule follow-up visions to ensure your treatment plan is effective.
