Distorted Vision

Navigating Distorted Vision

Distorted vision can be a disconcerting experience, affecting how you see the world around you. At our clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating various causes of distorted vision, ensuring you maintain your best possible vision.

Understanding Distorted Vision

Distorted vision, or metamorphopsia, can manifest as wavy lines, blurred objects, or an overall warped appearance of your surroundings. It can be a symptom of various eye conditions, ranging from relatively benign to more serious ones that require immediate attention.

Our Diagnostic Process

When you visit us with concerns about distorted vision, our approach includes, a thorough examination of your eyes, assessing both your visual acuity and the health of your eye structures. Dilation of the pupils is often necessary. It allows us to get a detailed view of the retina, macula, and optic nerve.

Specialized Imaging Tests

Tools like Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and fundus photography may be used to obtain high-resolution images of your retina, helping us identify any abnormalities.

Common Causes and Treatments

Distorted vision can stem from a variety of issues, such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and epiretinal membranes. The treatment will depend on the underlying cause. It may range from monitoring for mild conditions to injectable medications, or surgery for more severe cases.

What You Should Do

If you experience sudden or worsening distortion in your vision, it’s important to seek prompt medical attention. Early diagnosis and treatment are key to managing the underlying condition and preserving your vision. Here are instructions and a link to an AMSLER GRID.
