Is blurred vision mainly in the centre of right eye worsening with the day progressing alarming?

About 4 days ago I started to have blurred vision in my right eye sort of central and not so much peripheral. Although present upon waking in the am, it worsens as the day progresses. This makes reading very difficult. I do need to wear glasses for close work such as reading. I just had an eye exam in December of 2013 and everything was OK. Do I have cause for alarm?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems from the history that you are having blurring of vision in the central part of the visual field and it worsens as the day progresses.
The causes for blurring of vision in the central part of the visual field include central cataract or problems of the macula like macular edema, macular degeneration.
Hence this involves examination by a ophthalmologist to look for these problems and treatment accordingly.
