Everyone who suffers from allergies and suffers from hay fever experiences red and itchy eyes. What if the symptoms are associated with blurred vision?

For many people, the eyes are perhaps one of the most valuable organs: they are our mirror to the outside world and show the world in a more beautiful and colorful way. It becomes more difficult when eye complaints or diseases occur. Symptoms such as burning and redness, which in some cases are a reaction to foreign bodies such as dust or contact lenses or indicate an allergy, can also be the first signs of eye inflammation.

The eyes can react with inflammation of the eye tissue called uveitis due to an allergy, the presence of a foreign body or toxin, an eye infection such as conjunctivitis, or a bruise. The consequences are eye pain, redness, sensitivity to light, and blurred vision.

If blurred vision becomes a serious problem that severely affects quality of life and makes everyday tasks such as reading, driving or working difficult, you should consult an eye doctor urgently. He can conduct appropriate investigations and determine the cause. Blurred vision can actually be a sign of glaucoma, a condition known as glaucoma. This is a serious disease that can lead to blindness if left untreated.

Glaucoma is usually associated with increased intraocular pressure in the eyeball. High pressure in the eye can occur when fluid, called aqueous humor, builds up in the anterior chamber of the eye.
