Eye Gallery Offers Help For Blurry Vision
Individuals may sometimes develop blurry visions, which causes images to look hazy or out of focus. When this occurs, you must strain more to accomplish your normal tasks, which can lead to eyestrain and headaches. Eye Gallery can provide a comprehensive examination to determine the source of the problem and can offer treatments to help you see effortlessly again.
Causes of Blurry Vision
Blurred vision can occur from a number of different causes. You may have refractive errors cause by irregularities in the shape of the cornea, which causes light to be focused imperfectly on the retina. You may have systemic disease, such as diabetes or heart disease that causes structural changes in the eyes. Hormonal changes of pregnancy can cause problems with blurring or double vision. Dry eyes or “floaters” in the eyes can also cause blurring. Medications you take can also have effects on vision. In addition, eye diseases such as glaucoma or macular degeneration can also affect your ability to see clearly.
Diagnosing Blurry Visions Problems
Your optometrist will do thorough testing of your vision to determine if you have developed refractive errors that can cause blurred vision. These errors include myopia, presbyopia and astigmatism. The doctor can also test for the amount of fluid to moisturize the eyes, to diagnose dry eye syndrome. The optometrist will use a variety of diagnostic equipment to see inside the eyes and determine if there are any changes associated with disease conditions that require treatment.
Treatments for Blurry Vision
If corrective lenses will help to correct refractive errors, your eye doctor will determine the right prescription that will allow you to see clearly. Your optometrist can also provide treatment and referral for any eye diseases found. The doctor may also recommend a change in medication if that seems to be the source of the problem. A number of treatments for dry eyes, which can sometimes cause blurry vision, are available to increase eye fluids. Drops, punctual plugs or meibomium gland expression can help to resolve this condition.
