    Yes, it would be the underlying cause when you have increased or insufficient hormone levels. These chemicals regulate important body functions that can affect the eyes, and when they change, so can your eyesight. From childhood to old age, everyone experiences changes and fluctuations in their body chemistry. However, if you experience unusual or sudden vision changes, you should seek a comprehensive eye exam where your eye doctor can check your eyes and look for signs of other health conditions like diabetes. It's also a good idea to visit your medical doctor to find out if your hormones are out of balance.

    Yes, hormones can affect your vision. Hormones are of great importance to regulate our body function. They can affect our eyes as well. So the change of hormones has influence on our eyes. People with strong pregnancy hormones will have dry, irritated or watery eyes. They can't wear contacts until their baby is born. If you decrease hormones, you will experience diminished eyesight. So if you experience unusual or sudden vision changes, you should go to see a doctor to see whether your hormones are out or balance or not.

    Yes, there are many factors can affect hormones, and hormones can affect your vision too. An imbalance in hormone levels could actually be one of the causes of blurry eyes and jumpy eyes. But some changes in hormone levels are typically normal and they may not be the reason for your blurry and jumpy eyes. So if you get unusual or sudden vision changes, you should go to see your eye doctor and have a check, the causes may be some other problems, such as diabetes etc. Sure you can also visit your medical doctor to find out if your hormones are unbalanced.
