: I has a similar experience. The upper left quardrant of my right eye became totally blind. After the eye doctor couldn't find anything wrong I went to a medical doctor for test. It was determined that I had a vascular problem going to my brain. The doctor said they could do exploratory surgery but there was a 3% chance the surgery would cause a stroke. My other alternative was to take an asperin every day for the rest of my life. I chose the asprin. I took the asprin for approximately 10 years. If I stopped taking the asprin the blind spot would return shortly thereafter. Side effect from asprin is connective tissue deteriation. I am trying to correct the damage done to my connective tissue by the asprin now. Feel free to e-mail me if you have questions about asprin alternatives.
: I awoke this morning and my left eye has a blind spot wherever I try to focus. I am 32 yrs. old in perfect health. No glasses or contacts.I went to the Eye Doc today and he said my eye looks excellent. I have to go back for other tests on Friday. Any Ideas what's wrong with me? Can it be fixed?
