Ways to Improve Blurred Vision

Updated on October 24, 2016

Blurred Vision

Some people may think that blurred vision happens only at an older age, maybe around forty-ish. But blurred vision can affect any age. An individual having nearsightedness as a vision problem can see things in a blur that are a little farther than up close. There are many types of blurry vision problems, and blurred vision can affect one eye or both eyes. An individual’s blurry vision can be a result of a poor diet, aging, or medical condition. Blurred vision is when you can't see an object in detail from a distance.

Wearing reading-glasses is another type of bad eyesight. Because without reading-glasses, words are seen blurry and not seen with 20/20 vision. As I've mentioned before, there are many types of bad eyesight problems that may cause blurry vision. To name a few: farsightedness, glaucoma, optic neuritis, astigmatism, night blindness, floaters. Again, many blurred vision problems are caused by certain illnesses and medical conditions.

      Great suggestions and some so simple as "Wipe the computer screen every week with a dry cloth." Will implement that one for sure. Thank you.
