Blurred Vision

Blurry vision is the loss of sharpness in your vision. There are several main causes:

Hyperopia

Astigmatism

Presbyopia

Chronic dry eyes

Pregnancy

• Ocular migraines or migraine headaches

Eye floaters

Blurry vision after LASIK

Eye drops and medication

Over-wearing contact lenses

Blurry Vision Can Also Be a Symptom of a More Serious Eye Problem

• Eye conditions and diseases

• Cataracts

• Glaucoma

• Age-related macular degeneration

• Diabetic retinopathy

• Cardiovascular disease and other systemic diseases

Other topics covered on the Malbar Vision Center website fall under tidy, easily assorted headings, many with the obligatory, Latin-rooted, medical-sounding name.

While blurred vision and blurry vision is a symptom of many of the conditions ending with an “itis” or an “opia” discussed here on other pages, the causes may originate far from the eye.

Maybe it’s as simple as it being time for your first pair of glasses, but blurred vision may also be the result of anything from migraine headaches to a stroke, so it is doubly important to visit your Malbar Vision Center doctor whenever you experience blurred vision that is anything but momentary.

Blurred thinking? There are other kinds of doctors for that but, like them, we always try to be good listeners. We just don’t charge you by the hour.
