In brief: Sometimes

Many times patients develop transient obscurations of vision, or brief episodes of blurry vision.
These are temporary if treatment ensues promptly. Long term high intracranial pressure can produce permanent defects in vision due to damage of the optic nerve. This condition needs to be closely monitored by both neurologists and ophthalmologists.
