Will blurry vision and eye pain kill me or make me blind?

Will blurry vision and eye pain kill me or make me blind?

Unlikely: Most causes of blurry vision are instrinsic to the eye and are not part of a lethal systemic disease so death is not likely. Depending upon the cause, and more likely if there is pain, you may have a condition which can impair the vision. You should seek the attention of your ophthalmologist to determine this. ...Read more

Can you tell me if one eye has blurry vision, does that impact depth perception at all, or does one eye have to be totally blind to reduce depth perception?

Can you tell me if one eye has blurry vision, does that impact depth perception at all, or does one eye have to be totally blind to reduce depth perception?

Usually not: I knew a one eye'd tae kwon do master who could throw a punch at your face and stop within a milimeter of hitting you. There are enough visual 'clues' that we use that even with one eye our brain can percieve a depth perception. You'd fail our stereoscopic tests and probably waste money in 3d movies, but other than that you would have a normal life. ...Read more

 i might have MS because im getting crazy symtoms like i start to get a hot flash like im sweating but im not blurry vision,loss balance,hearing loss,

Not necessarily: Although nobody will be able to 100% counter your hypothesis to;; you're tested by MRI & examined neurologically- the first thing I think of when someone says they feel a "hotflash" is something hormonal not demyelinating. But again, who knows? I agree your symptoms warrant an examination. Why not start there and leave the diagnosis for when all the testing is in and you've been seen? Good luck. ...Read more

30yo w/ no eye DMG & prescription for vision is right; but have blurry, hazy vision, cannot focus eyes without concentration. Can i be considered legally blind?

Doubtful: Sounds like you need a good eye examination by an ophthalmologist. I bet you can see well. You don't describe any actual eye disease so i suspect you just have inadequate glasses. ...Read more
