Treatment for Blurry Vision at Our Seattle Optometry Clinic
Seeing fuzzy shapes instead of sharp, well-defined edges around objects is not only annoying and inconvenient, it can prove to be potentially hazardous. Blurry vision is all too common a symptom, with causes ranging from benign refractive errors to serious eye diseases. You owe it your eyes to get your blurry vision problem diagnosed and dealt with as early and effectively as possible. That's why you should take action right now and set up an appointment with our Seattle optometry clinic, SPEX Seattle.
Possible Reasons for Your Blurry Vision
That blurriness you're experiencing may be due to a problem in both eyes, or it may be originating in only one eye. For many people, this symptom is a common consequence of refractive errors such as astigmatism (irregular corneal contours), myopia (nearsightedness), or hyperopia (farsightedness). Middle-aged people also tend to develop a refractive error called presbyopia, which is caused by changes in the lens that impair the eye’s ability to focus. Other people may be struggling with bothersome, but temporary, blurriness related to floaters, allergies, pregnancy, or a recent eye surgery.
Sometimes, however, blurry vision can indicate and eye disease or disorder that requires careful monitoring and treatment. For instance, macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma are all progressive, irreversible eye diseases that can cause ever-worsening blurry vision. Other conditions, such as dry eye syndrome or computer vision syndrome can cause dryness and/or muscle strain, blurring your vision in the process. Dry eye needs to be addressed before it can pose a threat to the health of your corneas.
Your First Step: an Appointment with Our Eye Doctor
If you seek to reverse or control the cause of your blurry vision, your first step along that path should be a trip to SPEX Seattle for an appointment with our eye doctor. A comprehensive eye and vision exam can detect any abnormalities in your visual acuity, along with their underlying causes. Our optometrist may find that you have a simple refractive error that can be corrected with single-vision glasses or contacts. We also offer multifocal lenses for presbyopia sufferers who need some extra help at multiple distance ranges.
If you have an eye disease or disorder, you've come to place for primary eye care. Our optometrist can diagnose issues such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome or computer vision syndrome.
