Blurry Vision: Causes and Treatment at Family Vision
Experiencing blurry vision can be a scary and frustrating experience that can greatly impact your daily life. Fortunately, Family Vision in Anderson, Willamston, and Clemson, SC, offers professional diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of vision problems. In this article, we'll discuss the various causes of blurry vision and how our experienced optometrists can help you get the treatment you need.
One of the most common causes of blurry vision is refractive errors. These can include myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (farsightedness caused by aging), and astigmatism (blurry vision at both close and far distances). Our optometrists can diagnose refractive errors during a comprehensive eye exam and provide you with a prescription for glasses or contact lenses to correct your vision.
If you've already been diagnosed with a vision problem and are currently wearing glasses or contacts, blurry vision may indicate that it's time to update your prescription. As you age, your eyes can undergo changes that require a stronger prescription to see clearly. Our optometrists can perform an eye exam to determine if your current prescription needs updating.
Eye disorders can also cause blurry vision. These can include cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eye, and eyestrain caused by digital device use. Our optometrists can diagnose and manage these conditions to help restore your clear vision.
Cataracts cause a cloudy film to form over the eye, impairing vision and making things appear blurry. Our optometrists can diagnose cataracts and refer you to a specialist for surgery if necessary.
Glaucoma is a serious condition that causes increased pressure in the eye, which can put pressure on the optic nerve and interfere with vision. Symptoms of glaucoma can include blurry vision, narrow vision, or halos around objects, as well as eye pressure, headaches, and redness. Our optometrists can diagnose and manage glaucoma to help protect your vision.
Macular degeneration occurs when the macula deteriorates over time, usually due to aging. Symptoms can include blurry vision, blank spots in your vision, and poor night vision. Our optometrists can diagnose and manage macular degeneration to help preserve your vision.
Dry eye is a common cause of blurry vision that can be mild or severe. Symptoms can include burning, redness, and feeling like there's something in your eye. Our optometrists can diagnose dry eye and recommend over-the-counter eye drops or prescribe medication to manage the condition.
