A painless, sudden onset of significantly worse vision brings to mind a couple of possibilities including a stroke of the optic nerve or of the retina. In the case of an optic nerve stroke sometimes it can seem as though one half of the vision (either top or bottom) can be affected to make it seem like there is a curtain over the vision. If you have a history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or heart disease, you are more at risk for these problems. Also, if you have macular degeneration or early warning signs of macular degeneration, then it is possible this could be related to that. I would recommend going back to see your ophthalmologist
if this is a significant loss of vision that is not improving.
