Do you remember a time when you saw sharp outlines instead of fuzzy, indistinct ones? Has reading, writing, or computer work become more and more difficult for you due to blurry vision? Are you afraid to drive because you know that your eyesight isn’t 100 percent? Blurry vision isn’t just unsafe and inconvenient. In some cases, it can signal a serious threat to your eyes. That’s why you should get the problem evaluated and treated here at Mills Eye Care in Moorestown, NC.
Common Causes of Blurry Vision
Blurry vision can come and go in an instant, bother you constantly, or grow worse and worse as time goes on. It may also afflict you throughout your visual range or at only one distance level. Some of the most common causes of blurry vision include:
- Dust, pollen, or other irritants blown into your eyes
- Dry eye syndrome due to inadequate tear film coverage
- Computer vision syndrome, a form of digital eyestrain
- Conjunctivitis from an infection or allergic reaction
- Nearsightedness or farsightedness, in which an abnormal eyeball shape affects your near or distance vision
- Astigmatism (usually caused by corneal irregularity), which causes blurriness at all distance levels
- Presbyopia, an age-related focusing problem that affects near vision
Some causes of blurry vision are more serious than others. For instance, a corneal deformity called keratoconus can cause severe nearsightedness. Cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy can cause progressive, permanent blurriness and other forms of vision loss. That’s why it’s never safe to assume that your blurry vision is just a minor complaint.
Evaluation and Treatment Options at Our Optometry Center
Bring your blurriness issues to Mills Eye Care for a comprehensive eye and vision exam. We can check the interior and exterior structures of the eyes for any signs of diseases that require care. We can also perform refractive testing and vision testing to diagnose nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia.
Once we understand the nature of your condition, we can prescribe the right remedies. Corrective lenses such as eyeglasses and contact lenses are a popular, effective means of treating refractive errors and early-stage cataracts. More severe refractive errors or corneal problems may need scleral or rigid gas-permeable contacts. We can also help you manage dry eye, computer vision syndrome, glaucoma, and other eye disorders.
