Hi

Welcome to just answer

A sudden loss of half vision in one eye can be due to -

- retinal detachment - This is the commonest cause of loss of sudden vision in eye. If half retina is detached, then half vision is compromised

- vitreous bleeding - a bleed in the vitreous (posterior part of eye, in front of retina) can present with similar symptoms

- a tumour or bleed in the brain which might be pressing on the optic nerve (nerve going from eye to brain)

I would recommend you to not wait and consult an Ophthalmologist immediately. If it is a retinal detachment, then you would need surgery as soon as possible, otherwise your vision will be severely compromised.

Hope this information is helpful

Regards
