In brief: Change is expected

It is normal for our vision to change we get older. This is not a sign of going blind, more a sign of aging.
See you family doctor, ophthalmologist or optometrist if you are having changes to your vision.

In brief: Vision loss

If the loss of vision is correctable by updating your glasses this may just be the normal progression of myopia(if you wear distance glasses) or presbyopia(if you wear reading glasses.
That is a normal progression of things. If the loss of vision is not corrected by glasses then this could be an eye disease. See your eyemd for an exact answer to your problem.
