It is no wonder that we feel concern and anxiety when we experience vision problems, such as blurred vision. Vision is an important sense, but vision problems are not uncommon, and most are quite easy to treat. Nonetheless, anyone who notices a change in their vision should see an eye doctor to determine the cause and receive treatment to avoid complications.


1. Eye Strain and Blurred Vision

Hours of staring at a cell phone, computer, or television screen can cause eye strain, one of the most common causes of blurred vision. Reading small print for long periods can also lead to strain and blurry sight. Watery or tired eyes and dull aches often accompany blurred vision due to eye strain. The symptoms are usually short-lived, and resting the eyes for a few hours should bring relief.
