Default Why do people suddenly go blind?

I can understand some people are born blind. But for others, they become blind after a certain age. I know if you accidentally poke your eye until it bleeds, you will become blind. But there are still others who become blind without hurting their eyes this way. Why? I am very concerned as I don't want to suddenly become blind. The sight of the world is too wonderful for me to enjoy.

You can go blind from many eye diseases and some chemotherapy treatments. Your retina can become detached if your eyes are very weak. A number of things can go wrong but don't spend your time worrying about it. If your vision seems different then go to an eye doctor.

Sometimes l experience floaters and then it went away. At other time, I can't see clearly for a brief moment. I think for all these little things, we don't need to go to the doctor. It is better to ask around those with experience such as my friends, relatives and my dear forum members here.
