Could be risky: See a doctor today, and find out what is occurring. Do not let vision deteriorate. You might have reversible retinal detachment, which could get worse. You could possess an optic neuritis which could reverse with steroids. You might have a lesion on the optic nerve. In brief, your eyes are too valuable to wait.
