Question:
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?

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