can viagra (sildenafil) cause partial vision loss in your eyes?

No: Viagra (sildenafil) has been reported to cause the appearance of a bluish tint to the vision. There were a few reports of optic neuropathy in relationship to viagra (sildenafil) use but these were rare and may have been a statistically insignificant artefact given that the population taking viagra (sildenafil), usually having vascular disease, may be more prone to optic neuropathy.

Unlikely, see eye Dr: Any sudden loss of vision requires an urgent visit to an eye dr. This may be a retinal detatchment and require emergency treatment. Please go and see an eye dr, or local hospital which has both an eye department + er immediately. Good luck.
