I have been experiencing a strange sensation with my vision over the past 7-8 months. Occassionally, I will get these temporary blind spots on one side of my vision, much like when you stare at the sun and then look away. This lasts for about an hour and is pretty intense, but fades away on its own. It seems to come on pretty randomly, and it's not like I have to look at a light bulb for it to happen.
The last two times that it has happened was shortly after a fairly intense workout. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it or if it is just coincedence. I would say it has happened 4-5 times within the past 8 months, and I had never experienced anything like this before this year.
Has anyone ever had anything like this? I have been reading about the symptoms of detached retinas and it seems like this is one of the symptoms. I'm not rushing to conclusions, but I've already scheduled a doctor's appointment to have it checked out. That will not be until late February though, so I'm just trying not to sweat it until then.
