Blurred Vision

Blurred vision occurs when you lose sharpness in your vision or are unable to see fine detail. Blurred vision may affect your central vision, or your vision to the right or left side of your line of sight (peripheral vision). It may affect one eye or both.

Causes of blurred vision

There are many causes of blurred vision. It can be something as simple as needing new glasses or it could be a sign of a serious condition. Some of the most common causes of blurred vision include:

If you develop blurred vision over time it’s important to make an appointment with an eye doctor to help determine the cause and begin any necessary treatment.

Seek immediate medical attention immediately if your blurred vision comes on suddenly and you are also experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • difficulty speaking
  • loss of muscle control
  • facial dropping
