Blurry vision can make it difficult to navigate day-to-day activities from driving to using a computer. Some of these activities can be dangerous to attempt with less than clear vision. Luckily, people with vision issues have options when it comes to accomplishing clear vision.
An “optometrist near me” on our optometry team can walk patients through their options when it comes to improving their vision. Of course, an eye exam may be necessary to determine the underlying issue affecting your vision. However, once the problem or cause is determined, solutions are available. Our Chapel Hills Vision Clinic team understands how difficult many activities can be without clear vision and we're dedicated to helping our Colorado Springs, CO, patients see better.
An Eye Exam
An eye exam is the first line of defense when it comes to improving a patient's vision. An eye doctor on our team will delve into any underlying issues for a person's blurry vision. The eye exam is designed to get a detailed look at a patient's eye and any vision issues he or she may be experiencing. Some issues are more serious and may require surgery.
Older people who suffer from cataracts often deal with this degenerative issue that requires surgery for removal after some time. We might opt to manage or watch a cataract before going directly to surgery. However, as time passes, blurry vision often becomes worse in patients with cataracts, requiring surgery to restore clear vision. Although we do not offer surgery, we can provide a consultation. Patients who get surgery to remove cataracts receive an artificial lens that fits over the eye to replace the damaged eye lens.
Other Eye Conditions
However, there are other less serious reasons for blurry vision. Some people are near-sighted or far-sighted and experience blurred vision from different distances. When the cause of blurry vision isn't serious, an eye doctor on our team may be able to offer contact lenses or glasses as an easy fix to restore clear vision. In some cases, a patient may be a good candidate for LASIK surgery if they don't want to wear glasses or contact lenses.
There may be situations that make a patient a poor candidate for contact lenses. However, even patients who struggle with contact lenses may be good candidates for hard-to-fit contact lenses. Patients have many options when it comes to improving their vision and many of the options are preference-based, allowing the patient to make choices based on convenience and even fashion.
