It is possible that you may have a mild lazy left eye or the left eye may require slight optical correction. Your ophthalmologist can examine you and guide you further. In any case, unaided vision of 6/9 is good enough to continue to function normally in most situations.
Next Steps
Have your eyes examined by your ophthalmologist who could explain the reason for this and guide you further.
Health Tips
Keep a watch on your vision and report to your eye doctor immediately if the vision continues to fall or other symptoms like pain, redness or headaches develop.

Normal vision is 6/6 unaided in each eye checked separately. You need to go for a checkup. If this has not happened suddenly, no redness, pain, watering then u can take a routine appointment after the lockdown. If any of the above symptoms persist or if there is any black spot or blurred vision then u need to immediately see an Ophthalmologist.
Next Steps
visit Ophthalmologist
Health Tips
look of above mentioned symptoms

Vision 6/9 in the left eye is definitely less than normal. Normal vision should be 6/6. There are several reasons for not having 6/6 in both eyes but the commonest is refractive error ( number ). Wearing glasses should solve your problem. Please visit your nearest eye doctor and get your eyes checked. If inspite of glasses vision is 6/9 then we can look at other things like dry eye, amblyopia etc...
Next Steps
Consult local eye doctor

If vision in one eye is 6/6 then 6/9 in other is not normal. However without a thorough examination, conclusive diagnosis cannot be reached.
Next Steps
Please schedule an appointment with ophthalmologist to correctly and accurately assess vision and refractive error, if any.

First of all nothing to worry. You may have small refractive error in left eye which may need glasses if it is difficult in your day to day work. Else you need not. But you have to do a complete eye examination once the lock down is over. If you notice any deterioration in vision,pain,redness consult with an Ophthalmologist immediately. Else you can wait.
