Approach to Blurry Vision¶
Jonathan A. Barnett
- This flowchart is meant to serve as a guide. Bear in mind that there are always exceptions.
- Many ocular problems are not urgent and can be dealt with outpatient. Assessing the acuity of onset is the first step.
- In general, the top differential for blurry vision is Dry Eye, Cataract, or Uncorrected refractive error.
- If the symptoms are acute and just in one eye, it is more likely to be ocular and warrants further investigation (likely ophthalmology consult).
