Many answers: Vision can be blurry from ordinary need for glasses. It can get blurry from a host of eye problems including corneal infections and dryness, cataracts, internal inflammation of the eye, retinal bleeds and detachments, macular problems and defects of the central nervous system involved with vision.

Get an eye exam!: Blurred vision has many many many causes. Without an eye exam, there is no way to tell!

Too many to list: There are far too many causes to blurred vision to list. The most common cause is refractive error (having a prescription). This can be corrected with glasses, contacts or refractive surgery like lasik. Blurred vision may also be caused by eye diseases like macular degeneration. In this case, the treatment will depend on the disease process.

Dr. Richard Bensinger

Many causes: Vision becomes blurry with uncorrected need for glasses, internal pathology like cataracts and retinal disease, external problems like corneal disease and from nerve conditions like optic nerve dysfunction and brain damage. This should be evaluated by an opththalmologist for diagnosis and treatment.
