Blurry Vision Q & A

What is blurry vision?

Blurry vision is vision that appears fuzzy or cloudy instead of clear. If you suffer from blurry vision, you might experience:

  • Blurry nearby objects
  • Blurred distant objects
  • Blurry vision at every distance
  • Fuzziness or cloudiness
  • Blurry spots

The type of symptoms you experience may indicate which eye disease or vision abnormality you have. Routine eye exams and treatment are crucial to restore your eyesight and eliminate blurry vision once and for all.

What are the complications of blurry vision?

If left untreated, blurry vision or eye diseases associated with it can worsen and drastically reduce your quality of life. Complications of untreated blurry vision may include:

  • Headaches
  • Squinting
  • Eye redness
  • Eyestrain
  • Eye pain or discomfort
  • Progressive vision loss

Some eye conditions, such as macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy, can lead to severe vision loss if left untreated. Not seeing clearly can negatively affect your job or your ability to safely drive a car.

What should I expect during my eye appointment?

When you arrive at an appointment at Eyecare Professionals, your optometrist reviews your medical and vision history and completes a comprehensive eye exam. 

The team utilizes specialized eye and vision tests, assess eye movement and focus, and completes an eye health evaluation. 

You look through special lenses to help your optometrist determine your unique vision prescription. Whenever necessary, they may complete additional testing to diagnose or rule out eye disease.

What is the treatment for blurry vision?

Your personalized treatment plan for blurry vision is based on the eye condition or vision abnormality you have. Your optometrist might recommend wearing contact lenses or eyeglasses to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.

They may recommend corrective eye surgery if you’re not a good candidate for contacts or glasses, you’d rather not wear them, or you have cataracts, macular degeneration, or another eye disease. 

The optometrists at Eyecare Professionals offer pre- and post-surgical eye exams and work closely with qualified eye surgeons in the area.
