Glaucoma: Glaucoma affects the peripheral vision and patients with a very advance glaucoma have what we call" tunnel vision". Glaucoma is a silent disease and without proper screening can advance and affect your vision. Comprehensive eye exams will help detect it.

Glaucoma or Retina : Problems in either the retina or glaucoma can both cause "tunnel vision and blurry areas". Another possibility is optic neuritis or perhaps uveitis. Other retinal disorders can also cause such symptoms.
