When many people first realize they are having eye troubles, one of the things they may notice is having blurry vision. Blurry vision is a common symptom of a number of different eye conditions. It may be caused by a temporary condition such as pregnancy or it may be caused by the need for corrective lenses. It may also be an indicator of something more serious. If you are experiencing blurry vision, make an appointment to see an optometrist on our optometry team at Eyes on Hayden in Scottsdale, AZ.
Here are some causes of blurry vision:
Many common eyesight problems create blurry vision that can be corrected by wearing prescription lenses or contacts:
With this condition, things up close look fine (near-sightedness), but something in the distance is blurry.
This is the opposite condition from Myopia and is commonly called far-sightedness. You can see perfectly well for things that are far away. However, things up close, such as reading text, are out of focus.
With this condition, images at many distances may seem a bit blurry and distorted.
This is age-related loss of near vision. It is common and why most people need to use reading glasses as they get older.
Serious eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration may cause blurry vision.
You may not experience any warning signs of having glaucoma. The effect of losing your eyesight may be so gradual that you do not notice. With glaucoma, the optic nerve is damaged and that damage usually comes from high pressure in the eye. It may, however, also be present with normal eye pressure. As the condition progresses, you may experience blind spots in your side vision, tunnel vision, halos around lights, and blurred vision.
A cataract creates a cloudy lens resulting in blurred vision. It is like looking at everything through the bottom of a dirty glass.
This disease is characterized by having blurry vision and vision loss in the center of the visual field. This can happen over time and an eye exam can help you find it early.
