brief loss of vision in one eye
This morning  I experienced a brief loss of vision in one eye after looking down. (my head wasn't tilted down, only my eyes were looking down). It only lasted about 2 or 3 seconds but was scary.  Any idea what may have caused this? Could it happen again?

Hi,

Transient loss of vision is usually due to vascular causes leading to decreased oxygen supply to the eyes (Ischemia). There could also be other causes like optic nerve compromise or cerebrovascular diseases. There are chances of its happening again. It's advisable to take an appointment with a eye surgeon and neurologist.
