Blurry vision is a common problem that could signal the need for a change in your eye prescription or a more serious health condition. Blurred vision can occur in just one eye, or it can affect both eyes. A visit to your eye doctor can help to determine the underlying issue, so you can enjoy clear vision again. At Urban Optics in College Station, TX, we offer help for blurry vision that impacts your ability to perform your daily tasks.
A number of different factors can lead to blurry vision that makes your everyday tasks more difficult.
Worsening nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
Dry eye problems
Eye diseases, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy
Injury to the eyes
Medical conditions, such as diabetes
Your College Station Optometrist Can Help Resolve Blurry Vision
Your eye doctor will ask questions about your health and do a comprehensive examination of your eyes, including the internal structures. These tests can provide important information about visual acuity, eye pressure and the general health of your eyes. The optometrist can provide corrective lenses or discuss eye problems that require additional treatment. If your eye doctor can find no significant eye problem, you may be referred to your physician for further investigation of the issue.
Your optometrist can provide a change of prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lens that will facilitate good vision. If dry eye syndrome is the cause of your blurriness, the doctor can provide prescription eye drops or other treatments to help moisturize the surface of the eyes. Age-related eye disease, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, need careful monitoring to ensure eye health. If cataracts have developed, your optometrist can refer you to an eye surgeon.
