Your symptoms can be due to retina issue like retinal detachment..

It is unlikely to be related to stroke.

Even retina issue is considered as an emergency so consulting a doctor or a visit to medical facility immediately is mandatory.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
