Lots of thing such as old age or lense luxation. Also if your dog gets diabetes, eats posion, has a head injury or brain trama. Whatever the case is take your dog to the vet to get checked out.

Accidental damage to the eye from playing in tall grass (for small breeds) or being hit with debris from an open car window may be possible. Also consider the health of your dog, and if he or she may have any underlying health issues that may have caused it.

There are many causes to sudden blindness. One cause that I can think of off the top of my head is just plain eye injury. Eye injury could be as easy to get as rough-housing with another dog to the dog sticking his head out of a moving vehical.
