Well you see I have  temperarely have gone blind in my right eye about 6 times so far in the past 2 years, it only lasts up to a minute or so I have tried rubbing my eye when this happends but nothing, when this happends I dont totally go blind its like when you rub your eye hard and your vision comes back slowly except it stays that way thats how it looks when this happends I have explained this to my eye doctor what has been going on and he gave me a general eye exam and he said (what i knew he was going to say) he said my eyes are normal nothing different I am afraid I have to go to 10 to 20 doctors till they find out what is actually wrong with my eyes I dont want to be one of those people! and just about a month and a half ago it had just started on my left eye!!so any information would help me out alot!!

I doubt you are going to lose your sight permanently. At your age the most common cause by far would be ophthalmic migraines.

Find a good neuro-ophthalmologist, that's probably all you will need to see. Find one at www.aao.org
