3. Blurry vision or difficulty focusing on objects
The loss of sharpness of eyesight and having difficulty focusing on near or distant objects are major concerns when it comes to vision. There are a variety of explanations for why you might have these sudden vision changes, so it’s crucial that your eye doctor does a complete exam to tell you what the problem is.
They might prescribe eye drops, pills, or even surgery to fix the issue. A good rule of thumb: “If a patient is noticing a change in the quality of their vision, it is a good time to make an appointment to see their ophthalmologist,” says Dr. Andreoli.
Takeaway: The main causes of sudden blurry vision are medical emergencies that must be treated as soon as possible.
