I have been experiencing episodes of a blinding light in my eyes. It prevents me from seeing with the eye affected. Lasts about 15 minutes. I am able to use my other eye. My last episode affected both eyes, I was outdoors walking, I was unable to see, tried to look down to avoid the light (it looks like I had my head in the sun,) it is that blinding. As I looked down I was able to see the beginning of my black shoes ( very foggy,) Once the episode passed, my vision remained very foggy for awhile. I was told that I have lost my top vision. Has anyone had this experience. Two years ago I was told I might have ITA but neuorolgical test at the time did not confirm this.
Thank you for your response, and sending me the proper term (TIA). Since I wrote Aug. 11/2010, I have seen my family doctor,now just waiting for the appt. to be confirmed from the neurologist's. office. These appts. take awhile however, I will write you with the results as soon as I see the neurologist. You have been very helpful, Thank you, G37
