Signs of Sight Loss

Our Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian Discusses Causes of Sight Loss

Sight loss can happen at any time, due to injury, age-related diseases and undiagnosed medical conditions, such as diabetes. A good optometry doctor at our Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian will not overlook the obvious and will certainly pay attention to the unusual.

What are Some of the Different Possible Conditions that Cause Sight Loss and How Serious are They?

Most of the eye problems people experience are not serious enough to head to the emergency room, but they are serious enough to warrant a visit to Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian.

  • Difficulty reading or problems focusing
  • Difficulty seeing people or objects up close or far off
  • Difficulty seeing at night or driving at night
  • Missing steps or stairs
  • Holding reading materials up close
  • Sensitivity to sunlight, bright lights or low lights
  • Constantly cleaning glasses, repositioning them or problems seeing with them on
  • Running into walls or doors or knocking things over
  • Double vision
  • Seeing halos around lights
  • Seeing floating objects (floaters)
  • Recurrent pain in or near the eye
  • Blurred or hazy vision

How Having Regular Eye Exams Can Detect These Symptoms

Many eye problems are preventable and treatable following regular eye exams. Optometrists use special equipment that allows them to look inside the eyes and locate any abnormalities. If you are a diabetic or have other illnesses that may affect your vision, you should see your doctor on a regular basis.

Visiting your optometrist can prevent potential eye diseases from worsening. However, at the first sign of swelling, pain, blurred vision or problems focusing, you should not hesitate to contact our office for a thorough examination. You should always get regular eye exams, even if your eyes seem fine.
