10 Toxoplasmosis Symptoms

Symptom #2: Blurred Vision

While there are other causes, vision problems, especially blurred vision, may be a toxoplasmosis symptom. The presence of the Toxoplasma gondii parasites causes inflammation in different parts of the body. In the eyes, the inflammation mainly affects the retina, leading to blurred vision. The initial appearance of blurred vision may resolve. However, it may come back later and be more pronounced and accompanied by other symptoms like eye pain and permanent eye damage. Ocular toxoplasmosis can even cause blindness.

Like other symptoms of the infection, ocular toxoplasmosis can occur in adults and children who get the primary infection with the parasite. It can also occur in children who got the parasite when their mothers were pregnant with them. Globally, toxoplasmosis is the leading cause of eye inflammation.
