143 Possible Causes for Blurred Vision, Fundoscopy Abnormal, Progressive Loss of Vision

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    A 52-year-old man presented for blurred vision in his right eye. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 3/10 in his right eye and 7/10 in his left eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 35-year-old man presented with history of painless, progressive loss of vision in the left eye for the past 7 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 63-year-old woman who had been diagnosed as having RP was referred to us because of sudden onset of blurred vision in her right eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    Physical examination including fundoscopy as well as imaging showed no abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other symptoms include visual changes (blurred vision, transient visual obscurations, double vision).[racgp.org.au] Neurol India 2012;60:267-8 A 22-year-old thin male presented with holocranial headache and painless, non-progressive loss of vision bilaterally.[doi.org]

  • Macular Degeneration

    Increasing amounts of these deposits can cause blurred vision, most noticeable when reading.[vmrinstitute.com] Both cause progressive central vision loss with intact peripheral vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If more and more of these atrophic areas form and merge together, the macula can take on a moth-eaten appearance, with progressive loss of vision.[richmondeye.com]

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    Diabetic retinopathy is diagnosed entirely by recognizing abnormalities on retinal images taken by fundoscopy.[en.wikipedia.org] However, bleeding can reoccur and cause severely blurred vision.[web.archive.org] With early diagnosis and treatment, progression of diabetic eye disease and its associated vision loss can at a minimum be slowed, and in many cases vision loss from diabetic[bweyecenter.com]

  • Retinitis

    A second HIV negative patient presented with blurred vision and lid swelling and was found to have peripheral VZV retinitis confirmed by PCR.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A loss of side vision, or tunnel vision, is also common as RP progresses.[retinaspecialistsnw.com] Symptoms may include: Floaters (specks or clouds in your field of vision) Blurred vision Loss of side vision Just as with RP, symptoms may occur first with central vision.[webmd.com]

  • Retinal Detachment

    Abstract A 24-year-old healthy male presented with a chief complaint of blurred vision in the right eye for 1-week.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral vision is typically lost first, and vision loss spreads as the detachment progresses.[merckmanuals.com] Patients typically will present with symptoms such as light flashes, floaters, peripheral visual field loss, and blurred vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retinopathy

    A 57-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) complaining of blurred vision in both eyes was diagnosed with bilateral HCQ retinopathy and CMO based on characteristic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Over time this causes photoreceptor cells to die and progressive loss of vision results.[retinaaustralia.com.au] This changes the curvature of the lens, leading to blurred vision. However, once blood sugar levels are controlled, blurred distance vision will improve.[aoa.org]

  • Retinal Telangiectasia

    At the initial stages, there may only be vascular abnormalities, but as the disease progresses, exudation of fluid produces subretinal deposits, which can be seen on fundoscopy[karger.com] A man complaining of blurred vision had diffuse retinal capillary telangiectasia as a primary retinal finding.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This causes fluid build-up and swelling, impairing reflection of light and causing progressive vision loss.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Retinal Artery Embolism

    The procedure was complicated by chest pain and the acute onset of blurred vision.[nejm.org] The visual loss in CRVO patient is usually of slow progression and may range from a slight decrease in vision to profound visual loss, which s attributed by macula oedema[omicsonline.org] If the veins cover a large area, new abnormal vessels may grow on the retinal surface, which can bleed into the eye and cause blurred vision. There is no cure for BRVO.[sneretina.com]

  • Choroid Hemangioma

    A 70-year-old male presented with blurred vision of the left eye (OS). Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/60 right eye and 20/160 OS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unfortunately, vision in the eye was only hand motion perception because of extensive retinal degeneration and optic atrophy. changes can, and commonly do, result in progressive[medtextfree.wordpress.com] Amblyopia (lazy eye) As the tumor blurs the vision, the brain gradually ignores the blurred vision from that eye and the eye drifts or crosses (strabismus).[sturge-weber.org]
