Last Friday I suddenly lost vision in my right eye..eye..blood

Resolved Question:

Last Friday I suddenly lost vision in my right eye. I saw an opthalmologist and he diagnosed my condition as a "stroke of the eye". Because my blood pressure was very high [190/100]I went to the ER. In consultation with my regular internist I was admitted to the hospital for testing and observation. It was determined that my potassium level was very low[2.5] My BP has been controlled with medication and my potassium level is now 3.4 and improving. I would like to be referred to the Jules Stein Eye Institute to see a neuro-opthalmologist about any possibility of treatment. Can you refer me to the proper area at the institute? Any other advice?
