In brief: Unlikely

Most causes of blurry vision are instrinsic to the eye and are not part of a lethal systemic disease so death is not likely.
Depending upon the cause, and more likely if there is pain, you may have a condition which can impair the vision. You should seek the attention of your ophthalmologist to determine this.

In brief: No, but

You should be seen by an eye doctor immediately if you experience decreased vision with eye pain.
This could be related to an underlying condition that could be dangerous if untreated. As a rule of thumb, any new decreased vision or pain that does not decrease should be evaluated without delay.
