Brief Answer:
You should seek emergency medical help.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. You should better get an examination by an ophthalmologist. This can be a symptom of glaucoma or signs of retinal problems. In such case early management will be beneficial. Even migraine can give such symptoms. Do you have history of getting migraines. ?

Do you have any other associated problems like diabetes or hypertension. ?
In such case blood pressure and blood sugar levels should be checked. In case of high blood pressure or blood sugar can give signs like this before getting stroke.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
