Does heat stroke cause loss of vision ?

I had a heat stroke 35 yeara ago,by the time i got to the hospital by amulance. My temp had been lowered to 101 degrees, by cooling my head and body with water. i believe my temp. was considerably higher when I passed out on the street. I had convulsions and drawing of my limbs ,hyperventalating,delusional.i stayed over night in hos. I have not recovered my 20-20 vison.I saw fire before my eyes for days after,I have had poor vison eversince.Sensitive to hot weather. Has my brain been damaged ,or nerves to the eyes, or is it the eyes?.Can this cause glocoma? thanks jimmy

hi
due to heat stroke there is chance of damage to ur eye or brain .
mainly part of brain which have vision area is sensitive to temperature so chance of its damage is high
better to consult eye doctor
there are tests which identify the exact location of the damage

Thanks , Dr. Petel for your answer to my question. My vision has been blurred since the heat stroke. I have been sensitive to temp. changes also. What is worrying me is my eyes seem to be getting worse,pressure in the eyes, vision worse, more some days than others. Jimmy
