Dr. Kenkel Answers Your Eyecare Questions

My vision is blurred. Do I need to get a new prescription?

There are many people that think they need a change in their prescription because their vision is blurred, but really their vision is blurred because they have Dry Eye syndrome. Classic symptoms of dry eyes would be fluctuating vision when using a computer, because your blink rate slows when looking for extended periods of time at the screen and your not re-wetting your eye (cornea). The remedy would be to increase your blink rate by consciously remembering to blink your eyes when looking at a monitor and if need be, add a lubricant such as Systane or Blink. If your condition doesn’t improve, you should come into our office for a consultation.
