Blurred Vision

The inability to see fine details due to a lack of sharpness of vision is called a blurred vision. Your vision can get blurred because of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, bleeding into the eye, corneal abrasion, cataracts, certain medications, an eye infection or trauma. If you experience blurred vision, severe headaches, speech problems, and facial drooping, go to the emergency room, as these are signs of a stroke.
