Hello and thanks for your question. How blurred is the vision compared to the other eye? Has there been any significant eye pain, headache, flashing lights or floating objects in the vision? How quickly did the vision change?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I awoke with my left eye blurred....No floaters, pain, or flashing lights, etc. I did have a very small headache yesterday, just for a little while but it went away without any medication. Without my glasses my vision seems about the same in both eyes but with my glasses I can see the difference. I'm hoping all will be well in the morning for I've never experienced this before! I wasn't able to answer your questions until now but maybe tomorrow you could have something to tell me. Thank you.

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.
