Vision change: Anytime a person has a clouding or loss of vision in one eye, I recommend a trip to an ED because the causes for one sided visual worsening can be serious. It’s good your recent exam was OK but not things can happen - like a clouding of your cornea or a lack of blood supply to your retina - these can be evaluated in an emergency setting by trained doctors.
