When your eyes are unable to see your surroundings and the outside environment clearly, it could be due to a syndrome referred to as "blurry vision." Blurred vision is a decrease in vision sharpness as a result of several health conditions that perpetuate the hazy feeling of observation when you open your eyes. Yet there's hope! Our West Hollywood optometry team is primed to help you with all aspects of your frustration with seeing life clearly.
First off, we need to get to the root of your blurred vision, what's causing the haziness, and ways in which we can amend the condition.
Dr. Stybel, our premier West Hollywood optometrist, is grateful you're seeking medical care for your blurry vision. These are the underlying symptoms that have the potential to cause your eyes to get blurry:
Poor prescription eyeglasses
Constant dry eyes
Rubbing your eyes too much and too often
Dismissing the actual causes of blurry vision fails to address to condition. We take into account your health history, your activities, the amount of time you spend outdoors, genetic predisposition to eye problems, dietary standards, any other prescriptive medication that might impede eye health, and how often you get your eyes examined.
Blurry vision can be a scary condition, especially if you're unaccustomed to your eyesight being less than perfect. There are several well-known illnesses that can contribute to blurry vision in a sudden manner. They include:
Each of these illnesses typically occurs in aging populations, however, if there's a red flag in your health history or your diet is unfavorable, any of the above can plague your eyesight over the duration.
Besides paying us a visit at our West Hollywood optometry practice, we initially recommend you take your blurred vision seriously. Your eyes are one of the most important senses in your body. Try not to strain your eyes during times of fatigue. Make sure you receive proper hours of restful sleep and don't allow your eyes to get dried out. If necessary, use lubricating eye drops that relieve both redness and dryness. Shut down all blue light screens (computer, phone, T.V.) one hour prior to bedtime. All of these simple remedies can alleviate the cloudiness or haziness you experience.
Your eye well being is of utmost priority to us. Call to schedule an appointment before it's too late.
