A long list: Any pathology of the eye can lead to progressive vision loss. If you are referring to permanent loss, then it could he inherited disease like retinitis pigmentosa, or retinal disease like macular degeneration. Most vision loss is correctable so if yours is fading, see your ophthalmologist
