I've been having temporary vision loss in both eyes for over 30 years. It usually only lasts for 5 to 10 minutes, then goes away. I am 52 now, get annual check ups, have no health problems, and take no medications. When this happens, there are no headaches, but just a blind spot in the lower left area of both eyes. I first noticed this when I was in high school. The doctors all say that I am okay. What do you think? Any advice?

  • Hi, It sounds like you have been having a form of migraine. I have been doing the same thing and that's what my doc has told me. Just recently, I had something really weird happen! I was driving and all of a sudden my eyes started being forced to the left and I had so much pressure in my head, and I started seeing double! Luckily, my husband was with me so he grabbed the wheel and together, we pulled the car to the side of the road. I was aware of what was going and it lasted about 15 minutes. CT scan didn't show anything, MRI didn't either! I am scared, but at the same time I really want to know what happened to me!!! Please, someone help!!!!
