Hi yvonne;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Blurring of vision can be caused either by cataract or defect in the retina.Since you wear glasses you have been checked by a opthal doctor so it will surely not be cataract so the remaining part is defect in retina where there may be problem in clear formation of image on the retina.For this you have to discuss with a Opthalmic surgeon get examined and then you will come to know whether laser will help you for your problem;so consult a Opthal surgeon who is also expert in laser surgeries and he will guide and help you.
All the best.

If your vision does not improve with glasses or contact lens it will not improve by LASIK(laser surgery), LASIK is a cosmetic procedure , it sets you free from glasses but the vision remains the same

Hi Yvonne, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your History suggests you are suffering from what is known as Nearsightedness or Myopia. Kindly consult a Ophthalmologist as the you can easily get it corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses, if this doesn't help another treatment option would be surgery.
The Surgical options include,
1.) Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK)
2.) Laser assisted subepithelial keratomileusis (LASEK)
3.) Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)
4.) Anterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implant.

All these surgical procedures have a risk of Infection or scarring, you can discuss these with your Ophthalmologist and decide upon.
If you smoke and drink, QUIT. Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Get your eyes tested regularly. Protect your eyes from sun, you can wear sunglasses for this to block UV Rays, use adequate lighting in your Home during the evenings.

Wish you Good Health.
