Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Do you have prescription glasses for distance and reading?
Does the blurry vision improve when you blink?
can you tell me what you think?I have over the counter reading glasses 2.25..no it does not get better when I blink
In what situations is your vision clear and when is it blurry?
If I feel more anxious it gets worse
Both the near and distance vision?
No just the distance..when I use my reading glasses I read clearly..I just dont see as sharp as I use to...the eye Dr. said it comes with age..can that be all it is?
You likely have a small amount of prescription. So prescription glasses may sharpen your vision further, even if your vision is 20/20.
Even with 20/20 vision, early cataracts can degrade the quality of your vision someone, namely the decline in contrast sensitivity.
Since they are early and your vision is 20/20, surgery is not necessary at this time.
So should I go back to the eye Dr. and ask for distance glasses..and why wouldn't he have suggested that to me?
What I usually do in cases where there is a small prescription but the patient is 20/20 without glasses is to put the prescription in trial lenses and allow them to walk around the office to see if it makes any difference.
If so, then I would prescribe the glasses.
Ok I will go b ack to him..could you also tell me if stress could also be a reason for the blurry vision?
Stress can cause your focusing muscles to spasm and put things out of focus.
So I quess I should just go back and see if prescrition glasses will help..what do you think?
Yes, that may help.
