Causes of Blurry Vision

Blurry vision has many causes that range from broader health problems to eye changes due to aging. Those who experience the sudden onset of blurry vision should seek care from their eye doctor immediately since it often signals broader health issues you must control. Some health issues that can cause blurry vision include diabetes, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, or stroke. Rapid onset of blurriness can also result from eye-specific problems such as a detached retina, dry eyes, macular degeneration, myopia, and glaucoma.

Environmental causes such as smoke, wind, pollen, and excessive sunlight can cause or further aggravate blurry vision. Since blurry vision can have several causes, you should get your blurry vision evaluated by your eye doctor to determine the underlying cause and get appropriate treatment.

Treatments for Blurry Vision

Just as there are many causes of blurry vision, multiple treatments are available based on the causes and severity of your condition. Some ways to treat blurry vision include:

•           Eyeglasses and contact lenses: Blurry vision caused by refractive errors and cataracts are typically treated effectively with corrective lenses, such as eyeglasses or contact lenses. Corrective lenses, which focus light on the retina at the back of the eye, are a reliable and effective method to address these blurry vision issues.

•           Medications: Various prescription eye drops are effective for treating blurry vision due to certain eye diseases, particularly presbyopia and aging-related stiffening of the lenses.

•           Surgery: Cataract surgery to remove and replace a blurry lens and LASIK surgery, which reshapes the cornea, are standard methods to correct blurry eyes. Our optometrist can provide pre- and post-op care should you choose to undergo eye surgery.

•           Self-care and behavioral changes: Increased rest, avoiding allergens, modified screen times, and wearing sunglasses can treat blurry vision that results from your lifestyle choices. These lifestyle modifications can be helpful regardless of the underlying cause of blurriness.
