Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
when did the loss of vision occur ? When you say loss of vision, what do you mean ? Was part of the vision affected ? what was the visual acuity before and after ? was there any flashes or floaters before the loss of vision ?

total loss of vision rt eye
in cases of complete vision loss, that comes on suddenly, the possibility is almost always vascular in nature, meaning poor blood flow and circulation problem. In these instances, I would make sure I test for giant cell arteritis as the fellow eye can also become affected. The carotid arteries should also be examined with a carotid duplex. Baby asprin or other blood thinners may be considered. I hope this helps, if there is something in particular you need to know, please advise, Regards XXXXX
