9 Strange Eye Symptoms You Should NEVER Ignore After 50
#5: Blurred vision
Most people experience blurred vision at some point due to various reasons: watching too much TV, working late hours or simply being extremely tired. Sometimes, even panic attacks can have blurred vision as a symptom.
However, constant, unexplained blurred vision can signal many serious eye conditions including uveitis, torn retina and glaucoma. The risk of such problems increases with age, so if you’re over 50, you should let your doctor know as soon as possible.
Dr. Shugarman warns that ‘vision loss, especially in one eye, can be a sign that the carotid artery, which is a major supplier of blood to the eyes, is blocked.’
ATTENTION! If you suddenly experience blurred vision in a single eye, it might be an early sign of stroke, so make sure to call your doctor as soon as possible.
