Why is my vision suddenly dark?
It may be a symptom of an eye disease (e.g., AMD, cataracts, or glaucoma), or it could be due to issues with the optic nerve or retina. Your eyes need both the optic nerve and retina to see. If your optic nerve is having complications, you might develop optic neuritis, which can make your vision look darker.
