Temporary Blindness

My 12 year old daughter had an episode of temporary blindness.  I was curling her hair when she told me suddenly that she could not see.  She said that everything was totally black.  This lasted for at least 60 seconds.  When I started walking her out of my bedroom to rush her to the hospital, she began vomiting.  She then regained her sight.  I didn’t end up taking her to the hospital since she seemed to recover.  I’m wondering if she could have had a migraine without pain.  I’ve tried to research the topic on the web and have found temporary blindness can occur with migraines, however, it’s usually described as seeing lights and moving shapes.  My daughter only saw blackness.  Could this be a symptom of another more serious condition?  Should I be alarmed?
