Partial blindness in low light in one eye

Sunday I was hit in the eye pretty severely in a soccer game. After the blow, there was a 15-20 second period where my vision was very fuzzy. I began to develop a dark flashy spot I felt was localized in the left hand side of my right eye. Progressively it got better throughout the day.
Yesterday I woke up and there was a dark spot in the left side of my right eye's vision. When I went into the bathroom and turned on the light, 30-60 seconds it was gone. This morning the same thing.
I went to my universities physician and they could not see anything wrong. I have an apt with an ophthalmologist on Thursday but am curious as to what could be wrong and the severity of the issue.
Does anyone know if eye trauma could cause temporary partial blindness in low levels of light?

Thank you

  • The exactly same thing happened to me last Tuesday night, playing soccer.I would describe it the same way. So what happened after you last posted? Did it heal by itself? What the doctor said??Please help.
