Spots in front of eys

About a month ago, suddenly in the afternoon, the vision in my right eye in the corner went missing. Couldn''t see on the sides. Did go to optometrist nothing wrong with my eyes. Happened last week, left eye, was suddenly only seeing spots, meaning I see a person but can''t see the left handside of the face. Happened yesterday again before my run went away during my run and now again, suddenly. Parts of vision missing...What could be the problem. Murphy my house dr is on leave.

Any form of visual loss should be investigated as soon as possible. I suggest that you consult an opthalmologist (specialise in eyes only).

Hi Marie, ek was eerste na ''n oogarts toe en hulle kon niks verkeerd kry nie. Was nou gewees vir vastende suiker toets en hulle het sommer bloeddruk ook getoets, alles is absoluut normaal. Sal maar moet dr toe ook. Strekte met jou afspraak

Wendy, ek sit met dieselfde probleem, maar dit het nog net 2x gebeur, my gp het my verwys na oogspesialis, hy vermoed ''n bloedklont(jie) deur die oog - dit kan tot permanente blindheid lei. Soos dr Bets aanbeveel - probeer by ''n oogspesialis uitkom asap. My afspraak is hoeka Maandag. Baie sterkte
