Hi doctor,

Around six years ago, I used 0.50 power spectacles for sudden blurred near vision. The same thing happened yesterday. Again, I am feeling sensitivity to light now. There is no pain, fever or eye itching.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Photophobia or light sensitivity and blurring of near vision could indicate one of the following conditions:
  1. Dry eyes.
  2. Computer vision syndrome.
  3. Uveitis or intraocular inflammation.
  4. Ocular migraine.
  5. Idiopathic or unknown cause.
  • While first two are benign conditions and resolve with the use of lubricating eye drops, the third condition warrants a targeted therapy.
  • Also, you need to rule out any refractive error or glass numbers as that is the common cause of blurring, but not light sensitivity.
  • It is best to visit you local ophthalmologist and look out for redness and recurrence of this episode.
