That is a serious problem that needs immediate attention. The number of possibilities are many. Seek help from your local Lions Club. Many times they have arrangements with local Ophthalmologists to help out in cases such as yours. Do it soon.

It is important you get an eye exam. There are causes of decreased peripheral vision such as glaucoma, retinal detachments, and even brain tumors that are treatable so you should seek care. A simple eye exam from a local optometrist will probably cost about $60 but if that's too much there are typically free care clinics you could seek out as previously mentioned.
