Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose poor eye focus, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time
- Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.
Step 1: List all Possible Causes
We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "poor eye focus" as a symptom. Here are two possibilities:
- Premature Aging
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
some muscle wasting
slow reaction time
specific muscle weakness
waking up with dry eyes
major joint pain/swelling/stiffness
increased skin wrinkling
much reduced sense of smell
some loss of muscle tone
loss of interest in activities
reduced skin elasticity
rapidly declining health
... and so on
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of poor eye focus:

→ 12-36 inches (30-90cm or 1-3 feet)
→ Over 36 inches (90cm or 3 feet)
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate short focal length, average focal length, increased focal length or long focal length, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as:
