In brief: Yes

A great number of patients come in complaining of loss of vision.
Typically this is just because the patient needs glasses but loss of vision is a symptom that should always be evaluated immediately by an eye doctor. There are cases when waiting can result in permanent deficits.

In brief: Yes, many causes

We see many patients with vision loss, and we hope that it is something we can treat or reverse.

In brief: Unfortunately yes

Sudden loss of vision always requires emergency evaluation.
While in fact not common, it can be very serious and often is treatable, but might be permanent if not treated. You should go to an er or to your ophthalmologist without delay if you lose vision.
