Sometimes after patients receive a new prescription for glasses, they may feel that they are not seeing sharply enough. They may worry that the prescription isn’t correct. This could actually be caused by eye misalignment. Without proper diagnosis, a patient may continue to suffer discomfort for a long period of time.
Eye strain can happen from eye fatigue caused by reading, writing, driving or any activity with a lot of prolonged eye concentration. In some cases, this eye strain can be a sign of a serious underlying condition that is associated with a change in vision, an eye misalignment or the result of an accident or injury.
Blurred Vision Stemming from Eye Misalignment
Eye misalignments, especially when they are subtle, often go undetected. An eye misalignment means that the eyes do not work in tandem to create one focused image. The eyes attempt to overcome the difference, whether it is vertical or horizontal, leading to eye strain. A person can have an eye misalignment for years and not be diagnosed or treated. Eye misalignment can result in blurred vision, discomfort, anxiety, eye strain, headaches, dizziness, and pain.
Being properly diagnosed is essential. If you or someone you know has blurred vision, a common symptom of eye misalignment, it is important that you visit an eye specialist who is trained in identifying and providing proper eye strain treatment to alleviate the condition. It is important to go to a doctor who has both the knowledge and equipment to treat blurred vision symptoms, and who can identify whether you have an eye misalignment.
Binocular Vision Dysfunction
Eye misalignment can lead to conditions such as binocular vision dysfunction and vertical heterophoria. A person who is suffering from blurred vision as a result of an eye misalignment can struggle to identify objects and be uncomfortable in large spaces. He or she may have difficulty concentrating. The individual can also struggle at times to meet someone else’s eyes, and find normal body gestures and movement dizzying to watch.
Proper Diagnosis is Essential
Blurred vision can be symptomatic of various eye conditions. If your new prescription is not helping your vision, it is important to be diagnosed properly so that you can have effective treatment. Blurred vision also leads to eye strain. Treatment must be conducted only after a proper diagnosis.
