Blurry Vision

Total Eyecare Offers Help for Blurry Vision

Clear vision is important for work, school, and all your daily activities. If you are experiencing blurry vision regularly, a visit to an optometrist can help determine if glasses or contact lenses would help or if other medical issues are an underlying factor. At Total Eyecare in Elko, NV we offer a variety of options to help you enjoy clearer vision.


What Causes Blurry Vision?

Most frequently, blurry vision is caused by refractive errors that occur due to the irregular shape of your eye. Corrective lenses may be necessary to help you see more clearly. Several medical conditions can also cause blurry vision, however, so a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year is strongly recommended.   

Blurry Vision Can Also Be A Symptom of More Serious Health Problems

Age-related and/or inherited eye diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, or cataracts can cause blurred vision. Individuals with diabetes should take particular care of their vision because high blood sugar levels can damage the delicate blood vessels in the eyes and lead to permanent vision loss.

Sudden or gradual vision loss can be a warning sign for more serious ocular or systemic pathology. If you experience any vision loss it is strongly recommended that you have an eye exam as soon as possible. 

Options for Attaining Clear Vision

Your eye doctor will test your vision to determine if you need lenses to correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism. Eyeglasses and/or contact lenses can effectively correct most of these vision issues. Your doctor will also perform a comprehensive evaluation to assess the overall health of your eyes.
