If you have been experiencing blurry vision, you should definitely come in to see our optometrist at our vision practice, El Paso EyeCare. There can be many different reasons why you have blurred vision. However, the important thing to know is that any type of changes to your vision should be immediately addressed by our eye doctor. Sometimes blurry vision can be caused by dry eye. This condition can almost always be easily treated using either over-the-counter eye drops or prescribed eye drops. However, there are also many serious eye diseases and conditions, such as glaucoma, which can cause blurred vision to occur. In this case you will need to have immediate treatment to save your vision. If you would like to meet with our optometrist for treating blurry vision in El Paso we recommend that you make an appointment today to see our eye doctor.
Other problems that can cause blurred vision are astigmatism, or another refractive eye problem, or even cataracts. Cataracts can be easily treated these days with laser surgery. However, some patients do choose to initially have their cataracts treated by simply getting a change in their lens prescription. This can be done several times to improve your vision, but eventually most cataract patients do need to have their natural lenses replaced with man-made lenses during laser cataract surgery. This outpatient operation is one of the safest and most effective eye surgeries performed today. Our optometrist will be able to refer you to an expert ophthalmologist in the area who can provide you with this type of surgical care and help you with treating blurry vision in El Paso. Our two top-notch optometrists at our vision practice are Dr. D.T. Patel and Dr. Eley.
Finally, blurred vision can be caused by astigmatism or other refractive eye problems. If this is the case, our eye doctor will be able to write a vision prescription for you for eyeglasses or contact lenses which will have you seeing clearly again. Today even patients with astigmatism or dry eye can effectively and comfortably have their vision corrected with contact lenses. If you have tried contact lenses many years ago, or have been told that your vision cannot be corrected with contacts, you may want to explore this option again today. There have been many great advances in contact lenses over recent years, and you may enjoy wearing them today.
