Causes of Blurry Vision

Blurry vision can be a sign of diabetes, stroke, myopia, chronic dry eyes, and other severe conditions. If you regularly experience blurry vision, an appointment with our eye doctor should be on top of your to-do list.

Myopia

Myopia, also referred to as nearsightedness, is the inability to see detail at a distance. Myopia is a common refractive vision error that causes things to appear blurrier the father away from your eyes they are. It mainly occurs in young adults and children and has accompanying symptoms such as headaches, eye strain, and squinting.

Hyperopia

If you see things at a distance clearer than things that are near, you may have Hyperopia, also referred to as farsightedness.

Chronic Dry Eyes

In addition to blurry vision, dry eye syndrome can cause a burning, stinging, and gritty feeling in the eyes. People with dry eye syndrome often use artificial lubricating eye drops, but in more advanced cases, patients may need surgery or a prescription for steroid eye drops.

Pregnancy

Women’s vision may also appear blurry during pregnancy. While it is normal, it may also be due to high blood pressure or diabetes.

Treatment for Blurry Vision

The type of treatment for every patient depends on factors like the condition of their sight and the leading cause of the blurriness.

  • Hyperopia - an optometrist may recommend contact lenses, glasses, or a surgical procedure such as LASIK for vision correction.
  • Myopia - the most popular ways of treating myopia are contact lenses, glasses, or refractive surgery like LASIK.
  • Astigmatism - like myopia and hyperopia, astigmatism can be corrected using glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery.

Other treatments popularly used to treat blurry vision include:

  • Antibiotics and antibiotic drops
  • Steroid drops
  • Corneal inlays
  • Conductive keratoplasty

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else.

  • Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!
