What causes blurry vision according to TCM?

There are 22 patterns of disharmony in our database that are associated with blurry vision. TCM sees our body (and mind) as a holistic system in which health issues stem from imbalances, known as "patterns of disharmony". These patterns can manifest in a wide range of symptoms and illnesses, such as blurry vision here.

Most of the patterns associated with blurry vision are "Empty" (also called "Deficient") in nature. This means that according to TCM, blurry vision is more likely to be a chronic condition that is due to a deficiency of certain “Vital Substances” (such as Blood or Qi), or Yin or Yang generally.

This is the case when blurry vision is due to "Blood Deficiency", "Yin Deficiency" and "Qi Deficiency", for instance.
