Why Does Blurry Vision Happen?

Blurry vision often makes images and objects appear dull and out of focus. Several eye conditions and diseases, ranging from mild to severe, can cause blurry vision. Sometimes, blurry vision can also be a sign of neurological problems or serious eye disease — so it's important to have it checked out. At Bentz Eye Center in West Palm Beach, FL, our board-certified eye doctors provide comprehensive eye exams and diagnostic testing to determine the underlying cause of your blurry vision. After diagnosing the condition, we can provide you with a treatment plan to help restore the clarity of your vision.

What Can I expect From blurry vision and How is It Treated?

Blurry vision can cause hazy vision from both close and far away distances. Most often, blurry vision has other symptoms, like headaches, irritation, redness of the eyes, and light sensitivity. Generally, blurry vision occurs because of common refractive errors, underlying conditions, and certain circumstances, including:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Double vision
  • Astigmatism
  • Chronic dry eyes
  • Pregnancy
  • Migraines
  • Eye floaters
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Age-related macular degeneration
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Stroke

Since blurry vision can be a symptom of several conditions, we need to complete a comprehensive eye exam to determine the underlying cause before we create an eye treatment for blurred vision. Your exam may include spatial contrast sensitivity, slit lamp, and standard eye chart tests to evaluate the overall health of the eyes and discover any refractive errors. Based on the underlying reason, your treatment plan may include glasses, contact lenses, and medications, but for more complex cases, surgery or appointments with other specialists could be recommended.

Blurry vision FAQ

What is the common cause of blurred vision?
Refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism are the most common cause of blurred vision.

When should I seek medical care for blurred vision?
If your blurred vision comes on suddenly, or if you have a severe headache, loss of muscle control, facial drooping, or difficulty speaking, you should seek immediate medical care to ensure your blurred vision is not a more serious issue.

How does blurred vision get diagnosed?
Your eye doctor will take inventory of your symptoms and when they started showing up. This will include asking questions about your family history and then running simple vision tests to pinpoint the problem.

Can you prevent blurred vision?
A few ways you can prevent blurred vision include wearing sunglasses when you're going out into the sun and eating a diet rich in lutein (eating dark, leafy greens like spinach and kale). Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids and foods with vitamin A like carrots and sweet potatoes will also help.
