Common vision symptoms include blurred vision, flashing lights, floaters and an inability to distinguish between colors, according to WebMD. Additional symptoms include difficulty with vision tests and uncoordinated movement of the eyes.
Vision symptoms vary widely depending on the specific type of eye disorder. For instance, blurred vision is a characteristic of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, explains WebMD. The sensation of flashing lights and floating spots or dark veils indicates retinal detachment. The inability to distinguish color shading or intensity suggests color blindness. Cataracts are characterized by hazy vision, poor night vision, faded colors and painful inflammation in the eye.
