Remedies for Blurry Vision at Austin Vision Center
Blurry vision is an extremely common phenomenon -- but that doesn't make it a symptom to be taken for granted. Not only can blurriness affect your safety and productivity, but it can be a sign of an even more worrisome underlying condition. The good news is that you don't have to let your field of view become one big blur. Here at Austin Vision Center, we can diagnose the cause of that blurriness and prescribe the right remedies to help you get the most out of your eyesight.
Causes of Blurry Vision
The process of obtaining sharp, clear vision is such an amazing one, involving so many different elements and conditions, that there's little wonder as to why so many experiences blurry vision -- either for a few seconds at a time, or as a constant symptom. A speck of dust or a bit of mucous in the eye (a common side effect of dry eye syndrome) can cause blurring of vision that goes away after you blink. Digital eye strain from too much-uninterrupted computer work can weaken the eye's focusing muscles temporarily, causing blurriness. Pregnancy and other hormonal roller-coasters can affect visual clarity.
Refractive errors are among the most common causes of blurry vision. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia can blur vision at specific distances, while astigmatism may causing blurring at all distances. Even surgeries to correct refractive errors, such as LASIK), can cause some blurriness as a post-operative side effect.
A Possible Warning Sign of Serious Conditions
Sometimes an underlying eye disease can cause blurry vision -- and this should be taken as a warning. Cataracts, glaucoma, and diseases or the retina may include blurriness among their symptoms. These diseases can produce progressive, irreparable eye damage (possibly leading to blindness) if they're not dealt with promptly. A serious eye injury can also cause blurriness.
