In brief: So many things

At the age of 21, not likely cataract or macular degeneration, but a history of weight gain means possibility of benign intracranial hypertension needs to be ruled out.
Unchecked, it can cause permanent visual loss and other problems. Other causes include allergy, dry eye, astigmatism, uveitis, glaucoma, retina problems, various types of brain problems.See an eye MD right away.
