Refractive errors: Conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can cause blurred vision if not corrected with glasses or contact lenses.
Presbyopia: Age-related loss of near vision, which can cause difficulty focusing on close-up objects, leading to blurred vision.
Dry eyes: Insufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eyes can cause blurry vision and discomfort.
Cataracts: Clouding of the eye's natural lens can cause blurry or hazy vision, especially in older adults.
Glaucoma: Increased pressure within the eye can damage the optic nerve and lead to gradual vision loss, including blurred vision.
Macular degeneration: This age-related condition affects the central part of the retina, leading to blurred or distorted vision.
Diabetic retinopathy: Uncontrolled diabetes can damage the blood vessels in the retina, causing blurred or fluctuating vision.
Eye infections or inflammation: Conditions like conjunctivitis or uveitis can cause redness, irritation, and blurred vision.
