The symptom you are describing suggestive of something called amaurosis fugax
. This is cause by plaques in your carotid artery flaking off small bits into the blood stream. When it travels into the eye, it temporarily impedes blood flow and causes the loss of vision. This same process can happpen if pieces go to your brain and impedes blood flow to specific parts of the brain, causing numbness, weakness, slurred speech. In this case, it is called a TIA (transient ischemia attack).
The symptoms are concerned because it can lead to a stroke. You are very young for a stroke or significant plaque buildup in your arteries, but this is something that needs to be evaluated considering your hour long loss of vision. I'd recommend you see your ophthalmologist
and primary care doctor for evaluation.
If you have a repeat episode, numbness, tingling, weakness in your extremities or slurred speech, this can be signs of a stroke and you should call 911 and seek emergency care.
