Why Do I Have a Sudden Loss of Vision?

So many health conditions, illnesses, and injuries can lead to a sudden loss of vision. For example, if you have a retinal tear or retinal detachment this can cause you to suddenly experience reduced vision. Other conditions, such as diabetes and retinopathy, can cause you to have a loss of vision that comes on rapidly.

When Should Vision Loss be Considered an Emergency?

There are several reasons why your vision loss is an emergency situation. Most specifically if you experience vision loss along with severe eye pain, double vision, floaters, or flashes in the eye this is a warning sign of something serious. You should see an eye care specialist immediately. Also, if you experience physical conditions at the same time as your loss of vision this could indicate a far more threatening situation. For example, if you have loss of vision along with dizziness, numbness on one side of your body, severe headaches, nausea, or trouble talking, then you could very well be suffering from a very serious medical condition, such as a stroke or brain tumor.
