Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should have this checked as ASAP with a neurologist.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This could indicate a Transient ischemic attack.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In other words you could have had a clot blocking your artery to the eye causing your symptoms for a brief moment.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You need to have a complete assessment for this to evaluate where the clots are coming from and then appropriate treatment.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The most common location where the clots come from is the carotid artery which is the main artery passing in the neck.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will most likely require a carotid doppler ultrasound to have a look at these arteries to see if this is diseased and throwing small clots.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have any further questions.
