Blurry vision can be a sign that your prescription needs to be updated, or it could be a sign of something more serious. If you are experiencing blurry vision, our eye care specialists at Michigan Eyecare Institute will diagnose the problem. Contact one of our three locations in Southfield, Livonia, and Dearborn to schedule an appointment with one of our optometrists to treat your blurry vision.
Causes of Blurry Vision
The challenging issue with blurry vision is that there can be multiple causes. Blurry vision can be caused by refractive errors like nearsightedness and farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. However, there can also be more severe issues like cataracts or glaucoma. You can find peace of mind by having an expert from our team evaluate your eye health.
Dry eyes are also a common cause of blurry vision. The lack of lubrication can cause a visual obstruction. The glands that are responsible for tear production may not work correctly. We can provide many treatment options, such as eye drops and devices to change the drainage in your eyes. An optometrist from our team can help you based on your symptoms.
Diagnosing Blurry Vision
Blurry vision is pretty easy to diagnose with an eye chart test or slit-lamp exam. We will also review your medical history to assess the potential causes of your blurry vision. Then, we will determine the best course of action to get your vision back on track.
Treating Blurry Vision
There are many ways to combat blurry vision, depending on the cause. For example, if a decrease in blood sugar is resulting in blurry vision, we will recommend consuming fast-acting sugary foods. It could also be a simple prescription update to your glasses or contacts to improve your vision.
Preventing Blurry Vision
It is not always possible to prevent blurry vision, but you can take proactive steps to keep healthy eyesight. Some options include wearing protective sunglasses and eating a healthy diet. It is also recommended to have routine eye exams, especially if you have a family history of eye health problems.
