How Blurry Vision Can Provide Insight To Your Overall Health
Most people consider occurrences of blurry vision as something that happens when their eyes get tired and fatigued. For many people that indeed may be the case, however, our optometry professionals here at Insight Eyecare & Eyewear in Chandler, want people to be aware that recurring episodes of blurred vision can be a sign that there is a sign of refractive errors which are common conditions that affect the eyes. Blurry vision can also be an indicator of serious health conditions as well. Here is some information about blurred vision and how it can provide insight into the overall condition of your health.
Eye Fatigue And Blue Light Exposure
If you spend a fair amount of time using a computer, tablet, smartwatch, or any other type of mobile device, you probably experience frequent episodes of blurred vision. Looking at small screens can be taxing on the eyes. It is important to note that electronic devices like the ones mentioned, as well as television screens, expose the eyes to blue light. Blue light can cause vision to blur and can cause the eyes to become fatigued and irritated.
Blue light exposure along with staring at the screens of electronics for extended periods can cause dry eyes. The eyes can appear red, become itchy, sting, or burn. If you experience these types of symptoms more than once a week, our optometrist recommends you take frequent breaks when using electronic devices, and make a conscious effort to blink more often. You need to make sure you keep your eyes moisturized to avoid damage to your cornea. You can use eye drops to help moisturize your eyes.
It is Time To Take Your Blurry Vision Seriously
Blurry vision can be an indicator of several serious medical conditions like multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease, diabetes, and much more.
