Signs of Loss of Eyesight
Loss of eyesight, or blindness, is the condition of losing visual perception due to neurological or physiological disorders. Blindness may be temporary or permanent. It may also affect just one eye or both. Often times, blindness is an inherent condition that people are born with. However, other times, loss of eyesight is attributed to an injury, such as a head injury, brain injury, or a traumatic brain injury.
When people notice that they are suffering from vision problems, it is always advisable that they seek immediate treatment from a physician or an optometrist who can correctly identify and diagnose the source and cause of blindness. People who are losing their eyesight will usually notice the following signs:
- Blurred vision
- Dimness in vision
- Double vision
- Seeing floaters
- Seeing streaks
- Decreased ability to see close
- Decreased ability to see far
While many of these signs are general, it is always important that people experiencing these signs seek treatment from an optometrist who can correctly diagnose these symptoms, which may correlate with temporary or permanent blindness. After seeing a medical professional, contact an experienced Tampa loss of eyesight attorney from Distasio Law Firm.
