In brief: Serious!

Sudden vision loss can have many causes, including but not limited to retinal detachment.
Until proven otherwise, sudden vision loss is very serious, and should be evaluated urgently. In some cases, usually in older individuals, there is also the risk of also loosing vision in the fellow eye, making this symptom all the more urgent with increasing age.
