A medical question........?
Is there a type of blindness that develops, doesn't just come suddenly, and is unable to be stopped? I mean like your vision starts to fade, and there is nothing you can do about it until eventually you loose your sight?

There are many processes that can cause gradual vision loss..some can be prevented or minimized but many can't be prevented at all. If you suspect you have any visual issues, you need to see your opthalmologist asap. Some of the processes are for one eye:
inferior retinal detachment
Some can occur in one or both eyes:
atrophic age-related macular degeneration
optic nerve hyperplasia
Some of these processes are present from birth and vision loss occurs as the person ages...there is no cure and visual loss is definite. Others are diseases that develop.Source(s): I'm an R.N.
