Would having worse myopia and hyperopia cause you to go blind?

In brief: ????

Myopia or near sightedness and hyperopia, far sightedness, themselves don't cause blindness.
They are treated with corrective lenses. However, extreme myopia or hyperopia can be associated with certain problems that can potentially blind you.
