Vision loss treatment is most effective when it is started in the earliest stages of degenerative eye conditions. Many patients overlook this symptom and consider it to be one that is temporary and will soon pass. We strongly advise all of our patients to seek attention right away if they are experiencing this symptom. There are many serious eye conditions such as macular degeneration that become more prevalent with age and that often show no symptoms until the later stages of the disease.
Vision loss and blurred vision are early symptoms of many such diseases and can help us to detect and diagnose the condition as soon as possible. Many eye conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration show few or no symptoms in their earliest stages.
Vision Loss Can Be an Early Symptom of these Vitreoretinal Conditions
Notify your eye doctor right away if you experience blurry vision that lasts longer than a few days as it can be a sign or symptom of a serious condition, such as:
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Eye Cancer
- Macular Degeneration
- Retina Tear or Detachment
Undergoing regular eye exams allows your eye care professional to gain a better understanding of your vision and the can better detect the early warning signs of many serious vision conditions and diseases. Blurred vision treatment is most effective when it begins during the beginning stages of eye disease.
