It can be inconvenient and even scary to experience vision issues, such as blurred vision. It is important to seek treatment for vision problems so they do not worsen. At Arvada Optometric Center in Arvada, CO, our optometrist will perform an eye exam to determine the cause of your blurry vision and any other vision issues. We will guide you on the best solution to optimize your vision
Causes of Blurry Vision
There are a variety of factors that can cause blurry vision. Some more serious causes of vision issues that require immediate medical assistance include:
- Increased blood pressure
- Traumatic brain injury
- Auras from a seizure
- Medical conditions such as strokes
These conditions do cause blurry vision, but are usually accompanied by other, more severe conditions. It's important to rule out any serious medical condition for blurry vision first and foremost.
Once you're ruled out medical conditions, a visit to our eye doctor might be necessary to help you find answers.
Conditions with Blurry Vision
Unfortunately, many people now have to work in front of computer screens for hours on end, spend countless amounts of time on their phone, and develop poor posture, which can all contribute to blurry vision. In addition, there are several eye disorders that can cause vision issues. These include but are not limited to:
- Refractive problems, such as astigmatism, nearsightedness or farsightedness
- Amblyopia or lazy eye
- Corneal abrasions
- Macular degeneration

Our optometrist can help determine what the specific cause of your blurry vision is and will prescribe the proper treatment to treat your vision issues.
