A clear, sharp vision is essential when reading, driving, and walking. On the other hand, blurry vision makes you feel like the world is misty, and doing everyday activities becomes challenging by the day. At Optometric Images serving the Dublin and Tri-Valley Area, CA, we can help patients battling distorted vision. The common causes of blurry vision may include:

Dry Eyes

There are several causes of dry eye syndrome, ranging from arthritis and dry weather to the constant use of lenses. Whatever the cause of dry eyes, it may lead to blurry vision accompanied by other symptoms like:

  • Light sensitivity
  • Eye redness
  • Itchiness
  • Irritation
  • Watery discharge

While dry eye isn’t a cause of panic, if left untreated, it can compromise your eyesight. Eye drops and treating the underlying cause can help manage dry eye syndrome.

Digital Eye Strain

If you spend much of the day staring at digital screens, you may experience blurry vision. Your computer and mobile phones emit blue light that is healthy to a certain level. However, increased digital demand may cause eyestrain, resulting in blurry vision, headaches, eye dryness, and other symptoms.


If you are aged 40 and above, you are at risk of cataracts, which causes clouding of the lens. If you notice a foggy vision that comes and goes and is more apparent in one eye, please visit your eye doctor for a comprehensive diagnosis.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

The macula an important part of the retina, responsible for central vision and fine details. Blood and other fluids can leak from the blood vessels in the macula as we age, affecting the macular cells. Symptoms of AMD include blurry vision.


Pressure build-up in the eye may damage the optic nerve, leading to blurry vision at the onset. As the disease progresses, you may experience tunnel vision and blind spots in peripheral vision. An optometrist on our team will be able to check for glaucoma.
