Refractive Errors

Refractive errors are a common cause of blurry vision. They include nearsightedness, astigmatism, and farsightedness. Being nearsighted means that objects farther away look blurry. Being farsighted means that you have trouble seeing things near you clearly. Astigmatism can cause blurry vision at any distance. These errors occur when the shape of your eye or cornea affects how light enters and focuses on or near your retina.

Eye Conditions

Other kinds of eye conditions can cause blurred vision as well. You might have this symptom if you have dry eye syndrome or eye strain from screens. More serious eye conditions, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, can also cause blurry vision. Cataracts, injuries to the cornea, and other conditions might also result in blurriness. In some cases, sudden blurry vision might require immediate treatment. Migraines, retina detachment, stroke, and bleeding in the eye, are examples of potential causes of sudden blurriness.

Treatment for Blurry Vision

The way blurry vision is treated will depend on the cause. For refractive errors, prescription contact lenses or eyeglasses can correct vision. If an underlying eye disease or condition causes blurriness, an eye doctor near you on our team will discuss treatment options with you. For example, using prescription eye drops might help ease dry eye syndrome.

When to See an Eye Doctor for Blurry Vision

If you’ve had changes in your vision, including blurriness, it may be a good idea to set up an eye exam. An optometrist near you on our team can help[ evaluate your eyes to find out what’s causing it. We can then go over treatment options. If you have blurry vision that happens suddenly,  seek immediate care. Some causes of sudden blurriness are medical emergencies, such as stroke.
