Blurred or double vision is a sign you need to get your eyes checked. Both of these can be symptoms of several underlying conditions ranging from mild to serious. Some can be easily corrected with glasses. If your vision is blurred when you try to focus on objects close by, you may be farsighted. When your vision becomes blurred looking at objects far away, you might be nearsighted. These conditions occur when the lens of your eye isn't able to focus light directly on the retina. Instead, it focuses on images before or behind the retina. The vision changes from nearsightedness and farsightedness can occur so slowly that you don't notice your vision is getting worse. Adults most commonly notice the issues when they try to focus on text on a computer screen, read a book, or drive. It might be difficult to make out road signs unless they're very close or far away. Children tend to notice issues when they're at school, doing homework, or reading.
