Blurry Vision Treatment at Eye Care Specialists of Florida
For many people the world over, the world always looks like a blur until they've got their glasses on or their contacts in. For others, a sudden blurring of vision is anything but "business as usual." Blurry vision can have many causes, some more worrying than others, so it pays to get your eyes checked and your vision restored to optimal clarity. Here at Eye Care Specialists of Florida, our Kissimmee ophthalmologist, Dr. Choudhri, is more than happy to oblige.
Why Is Your Vision Blurred? A Variety of Possible Causes
Blurring of vision doesn't always signal a major problem. Dust, allergies, and other momentary irritations can all cause passing blurriness. Temporary blurriness that comes on after long hours at the computer is known as digital eye strain. Dry eye syndrome and conjunctivitis can also cause blurred vision due to mucous in the eye; these conditions aren't emergencies, but they should still be treated to avoid any potential damage to the corneas. The most commonplace causes of ongoing blurry vision are refractive errors. Myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia cause abnormal refraction of light inside the eye, producing vision at specific distances (or, in the case of astigmatism, at any distance).
When Blurry Vision Means Serious Trouble
Some causes of blurry vision indicate serious underlying issues -- issues that could lead to more serious vision loss or even blindness if they go unaddressed. For example, cataracts typically cause blurriness among other early symptoms. Glaucoma can signal its presence through blurry vision. Retinal diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy may produce blurry vision before progressing to even worse symptoms.
