What causes sudden blurred vision in one eye?

Tonight I had blurred vision in one eye; discovered the blurred eye s pupil was di lated compared to the other. What does this mean? should I see an eye doctor or general physician? Feels like some pressure in that eye, as well. Has been a couple of hours now from onset.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I would advise you to see an ophthalmologist quickly . It could be an optic nerve i.e. the nerve which connects the eye to the brain involvement and this needs urgent attention. pupil also gets affected in such conditions . color vision is one thing which gets affected too.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a nickel-sized lump on the right side of my throat that has been there about 1 month. I have been on zithromicin (Z-pack) for sinus issues and the lump did not go away. I also have noticed I have blurred vision in my right eye. I don t know if this has been a sudden onset or if it has happened so gradual that I am just now noticing, but it is considerably blurry compared to my left eye. I did have LASIK eye surgery 10 years ago. Just wondering if I should be concerned that it might be more than just nearsidedness returning. Thanks!
