Missing hole in field of vision, small part of right field of vision missing. Suggestions?

Hi. Yesterday morning I woke up with a missing hole in my field of vision in my left eye. I could see all things in front of me, but things in my left periphery were just blank. It finally went away about an hour and a half after waking up. This morning I woke up and a small part of my right field of vision was missing...again in the periphery. It went away within 45 minutes. Any thoughts?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response

Thanks for your question. You are most likely to be suffering from an ophthalmic migraine. In this condition you may have a visual disturbance that returns to normal after a few minutes. There may or may not be associated headaches as well. In most cases it does not require treatment.

However, there are a few more worrying conditions that should be ruled out first. I would recommend that you see your eye doctor for a full eye examination including a dilated retinal examination.
