Many causes: It is best to have an ophthalmologist exam your eyes. Could be as

Glaucoma, retinal : Detachment, retinal schisis, intermittent embolic occlusion of the central retinal artery as in amaurosis fugax, and more. One eye exam could rule out the majority of serious conditions. Many treatments are available for many of the conditions that can cause blurriness. The key is to begin treatment earlier for better visual results. Get the exam, please.
