My next door neighbor has suddenly gone blind in one eye and has only
blurred vision in the other, how can this happen so suddenly.

So many reasons, but my first thought is pressure on the optic nerve, high blood pressure, or abnormal growth of tissues can cause this.

Thanks hypatia, are any of these treatable?

Treatments are way out of my field..which has to more with forensic anthropology. Maybe someone else can answer that for you.
Thats got to be so scary for your neighbor, to suddenly loose there sight!

Before your ignorance pushes you to engage the censorship button again....

As a thinking intelligent person in charge of a science forums, why don't you go read the article that just came out saying Viagra causes blindness in one eye.

The US government warned today that the anti-impotence drug Viagra could make you go blind.

Viagra is for sex. If Viagra causes blindness in one eye, just like this man is asking, what makes you think it is a censorable thing to tell this man his buddy has gone blind from too much masturbation? Masturbation is sex.

Didn't your mamma ever tell you that touching yourself will make you go blind?

You owe me an apology for your rude and mindless actions.

Yes: Viagra, not mastrubation. Get your facts straight.
