Worried about Eye Symptom

When sitting at an airport early last month, in the afternoon, I noticed that there was blurring of my central vision (like small, circular gray-yellowish film). This last 3-5 hours. I saw my OPHTH, and he said that my dilated eye exam was normal.
Then this past week, in the late evening, while reading a book, the same thing happened, and lasted more than 5 hours, but as it was late... I went to bed and it was OK in the AM.
I called my OPHTH, and he ordered an MRI (with and without contrast); this was normal.
He said he didn't think my symptom was serious. It certainly scared me.
I'm afraid that this may be a "red flag" for something potentially "bad",that may be possibly prevented in the future, or could be treated, so I won't lose my vision if if returns and stays permanently.
