Hi Mark,
I am glad your stroke was minor. You seem to be doing well for it only happening 2 weeks away. Your eye peripheral problem is probably from the stroke. I am not a doctor obviously, but I also had that problem after my stroke. It still pops up now and then even after a year. When it happens, first don't panic, that is the worst thing. When I feel that coming on, I will take an aspirin, a fish oil capsule and a full glass of water and it always goes away. If your eye problem is chronic, you should see a doctor, also, are you diabetic? That could be another symptom with eye problems. Try to drink as much water as you can and try to use salt sparingly, especially since you already had a mini-stroke.

If your eye vision (I call it half blind) keeps happening it could be a symptom of another stroke. Try aspirin, fish oil and water if you don't already. It may fix the problem.

God Bless,
Tim

There is no way for them to predict whether your eyesight will improve after a stroke.  Hopefully, you will be lucky.  It is always possible that it will return to normal or at least improve. You say it has only been a couple of weeks--it needs time if it is going to come back.  My mother was recently in the same situation. Unfortunately, she had other problems with her eyes, so she didnt have the best eyesight to begin with. Then, the stroke stole alot of the eyesight she had left. The doctor said it might return, but when she went to several eye specialists, they said it would not return after a stroke.  You will just have to wait and see if it improves. The very best thing you can do now, is be careful about your diet and meds so you can prevent another stroke from stealing more of your eyesight
