    High cholesterol will not affect your vision directly, but it can increase the risk for damage your eyesight. High cholesterol may prevents blood from reaching your brain, which will cause you have blurry vision or loss vision in one or both eyes. Contact your doctor with any change in your vision if you have high cholesterol to prevent your health condition become worse.
