How to rectify blind spots in vision coming and going quickly?

I am a 35 year old female. Have had blind spots in vision that come and go quickly, the last couple of months, and have had a few episodes where after waking up, I will be ok for a few minutes, then get blind spots in the middle of both eye fields of vision. This morning was particularly disturbing. Large whitish blind spot with a dark circle in the middle of it. It started after I closed my eyes in the shower to wash my face...continued at least a minute and a half after I opened them.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response

Since the blind spots are episodic and not present continuously all the time, they could be either due to transient obscuration of vision (TOV) which can occur due to reduced blood flow to the eye blood vessels, or due to migraine ( acephalic type without any headache) or it could be a floater due to PVD(posterior vitreous detachment). To give a conclusive diagnosis it is very important to get the eyes examined by an ophthalmologist first and then a physician if need be.
