Home Remedies For Cloudy Vision
26 years old. High school athlete. Not active for past 5 years. Light headed, weak legs, cloudy vision, hard to breathe during exercise. What's wrong?
It depends: First of it depends on why you had a laser as your symptoms may be from your disease not your treatment, .
Many causes: There many causes of cloudy vision. A simple need for a glasses presciption is probably the most common cause. Dry eye, ocular allergy, and eyelid related problems are other minor problems that can cause this. More serious conditions like cataract (rare at your age), glaucoma, retinal conditions, and optic nerve conditions are unlikely. Only an eye examination can determine the cause.
Diabetes: Uncontrolled diabetes can blur vision due to its effects on the lens of the eye. When blood sugar runs high it acts as a solute and draws water into the lens creating a hydrops or blurred vision. If fairly recent in nature this effect can be reversed several times. However, if the diabetes is kept uncontrolled the hydrops and other protein degeneration in the lens leads to permanent cataract.
Quite likely: Common descriptions of "blurred" vision include "cloudy", "fuzzy", "hazy" and several other terms. All are common symptoms in an ophthalmologist's office, and should be investigated with a thorough eye examination. There are many possible causes, probably cataract, macular degeneration, and change in glasses prescription are the most common.
Two causes: First- night myopia, everyone experiences a myopic change a night time, some notice more than others. Second - the eyes after a long day are tired and could be dry or irritated. For this try blinking more often or some lubricating eye drops like systane ultra or drops called blink.
Less light.: At night your pupil dilates in an attempt to permit more light to enter your eye and impact your retina. The center of our vision is the macula where our more precise "cone" photoreceptors reside and permits us to see well in light. Our peripheral retina has less precise "rod" receptors that are more exposed at night when our pupil dilates. This is why your vision is "fuzzier" at night.
Several things: This is a problem that requires a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. In that meeting, your doctor will listen to you, perform a throrough examination and possibly order labs or other tests. Based on this information, he/she will be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
Experienced cloudy vision after the spa. Most apparent, if I spend too much time in the steam room. Vision returns to normal after 2-3hrs. Why?
Edema: Most likely you have some mild swelling or edema of the cornea due to lack of oxygen from contact use. The cornea gets its oxygen from the air around it. Contacts can block this especially if they are worn to long or if you sleep in them. Stay out of your contacts for a while, see your eye doctor to possibly change contact lens brands, never sleep in your contacts, and finally, consider lasik.
What can be causing me to have cloudy vision, as well as seeing halos and rainbows around lights?
See below: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.
