There are many things that can cause someone to go blind. I'm completely blind in my eye. It could be because of a vessel behind the eye that popped. I'm not an eye doctor so I'm unsure about this one.

Most common and most important cause is Diabetic Retinopathy. It occurs in long standing diabetics- controlled or uncontrolled. That is why diabetics are advised yearly retina check up. Eye complications of hypertension and severe eye injury are the other causes.

well you have to qualify continuous bleeding - obviously the bleeding would be deadly (cause death) if a lot of blood is lost.
