Hello
usually not, but you need an eye exam and a general exam.

You need to have glaucoma ruled out, which is easily done.
Ruling out other eye problems at this time would be good.

You also need to make sure there is no blood pressure problem, infectious problem, oar systemic problem such as a liver problem.

See your doctor asap.
I would not wait.
