Twice, I have had sudden double vision followed by about 30

Customer Question

Twice, I have had sudden double vision followed by about 30 minutes of "foggy" feeling. There is no pain and after a few minutes everything is back to normal.
The first time was the end of May and then again yesterday.
In May, I was given an MRI of the brain, EKG, blood work and all results were normal.
What could be causing this? I have lost weight in the past 10 months but I do try to eat healthy. I am 78 years old.

Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Did you get an examination by ophthalmologist?

Which specialist did you consult in May?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 months ago.

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.

I am sorry for your symptoms.
The symptom should not be neglected.
I would advise to get an examination by an ophthalmologist.
Ophthalmologist can take a detailed examination to rule out an eye cause.
Those may come from cornea, lens or from muscles that move the eye.
An inflammation of the cornea can cause it.
There can be a weakness of external eye muscle.
Though there was no neurological problem in May, a review by neurologist may be needed.
Transient ischemic attack of brain needs to be ruled out..
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
