Blurry vision can be temporary and caused by a minor issue, or it can indicate a more serious eye health problem. If you have persisting blurry vision, with or without additional symptoms, we encourage you to contact the Shreveport Eye Clinic to connect with an eye doctor in the Shreveport and Bossier LA area. Our ophthalmologist staff offers state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services to help you maximize your vision and eye health.
In rare cases, blurry vision can indicate a serious underlying health problem requiring urgent medical attention. If your blurry vision comes on suddenly and is persistent, and if it is accompanied by other sudden symptoms such as headaches and eye pain, please call 911 and seek emergency care. Acute blurry vision may occur due to potentially serious health problems such as strokes and retinal detachment.
Most cases of blurry vision are not caused by a medical emergency. However, if your blurry vision lasts longer than a day or two, it's still important to seek professional help from an eye doctor. This is because untreated causes of blurry vision may lead to progressive vision loss and other issues.
Some of the most common causes of blurry vision seen by a doctor of ophthalmology or optometry include:
The most important step in resolving your blurry vision is getting a proper diagnosis. An ophthalmologist in Shreveport can diagnose your case of blurry vision through a variety of tests and measures, including external/internal eye inspection, vision testing, lab work, and personal/family history assessment.
Once a diagnosis has been made, our staff can initiate the appropriate treatment. This may include in-clinic services such as corrective eyewear prescription, medications, or even surgical procedures.
