Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These symptoms are likely due to the another TIA. Involvement of the optic nerve due to the ischemia can cause such symptoms momentarily. Retinal detachment also can cause such symptoms as another possibility.
Please see your doctor soon for further evaluation.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
