When I wake up at night to use the restroom and don't turn on any lights, my vision with my right eye is like looking through a veil. If I cover it and only look around with my left eye, I see much more clearly. Details of the door, etc. If I cover my left eye and look around with my right eye, it is considerably darker and details I could see with the other eye disapper. It is like looking through a thin veil.
I would recommend a comprehensive evaluation with an ophthalmologist (Eye MD). Your symptoms could indicate an optic nerve or retina problem. You need to have a visual field performed, which tests the extent of the field of vision, and a gonioscopy to evaluate for narrow anterior chamber angles. If the angles are open, you also need a full dilated exam.
