Have you experienced sudden vision loss?

Asked by jonsblond (38480 points ) August 16th, 2014

I lost vision in my right eye for a few minutes yesterday. I get migraines with aura, and this has happened to me once before.

I experience visual disturbances at least once weekly, but I’ve only experienced sudden vision loss twice. It is such a terrifying experience. My greatest pleasures come from visual perceptions. I fear I may lose my eyesight one day. Macular degeneration runs in the family.

Can you tell me about your experience and share how you coped. What caused the sudden vision loss? Are you afraid of repeated occurrences?
