I woke up to a complete loss of vision in my left eye. I turned on the bathroom light and it slowly came back, in less than 15 seconds. I just had an eye exam last week which was normal. No other symptoms and vision is fine. What may have caused this?

Complete, sudden loss of vision which then resolves is consistent with a problem in blood flow to the eye. This requires further evaluation.
