Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Does she have any medical problems or take any medications?
At this point is the loss of vision occurring in BOTH eyes, but just one area? Would you say that it is like she can't see to one side, say the left half or the right half for example?
How long does does her vision go away for?
When it comes back does she say that it like someone turning a dimmer switch back on slowly?
Does she see shimmering lights in the area of reduced/lost vision?
I see that you are offline. I will switch to Q&A format. This format works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)

she doesn't see shimmering lights. happened 2x today since she got up.

Well she went to her doctor and they cant explain it and she also went to an eye doctor. He said no way that was the answer but I will say thank you for your opinion and no opinion is a bad opinion. Hard to fix something that is not in front of you. Thanks for your help. I just was so scared for my mother and it was a weekend.
