March 27, 2020

At Ojas eye hospital in Mumbai, our eye specialists, understand, that a lot of patients, interchange the words ‘Cloudy vision’ and ‘Blurry vision’ when they cannot see things clearly. However, there is a difference between the two.

Since your eye specialist relies on the information of the experiences provided by you, it is vital for you to know the difference between the two, and accordingly describe it to your eye specialist.

Blurry Vision:

Remember using a single lens reflex camera? When it would be out of focus and one would have to focus it manually.

Blurry vision is the same experience you get, minus the camera.

The objects may appear blurry when you may be looking straight at them or when they sit to one side or the other of your peripheral vision.

  • If there is Corneal scarring
  • If you have any Injury or abrasion to the cornea
  • If you have Optic Neuritis
