Brief Answer:
Investigation required.

Detailed Answer:
My desr,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
There are many possibilities which are to be kept in mind. As your sugarr level is normal, BP is also to be monitored.
Similar picture also occurs in case of migraine. There visual blurring ,lasts longer and is followed by severe headache for 6 to 8 hours. Usually there is a family history of migraine. Do you have such headaches?

Besides the migraine, such transient blurring have to have a vascular basis.You also have to have a complete eye checkup to rule out any eye problem as well as fundus examination.
You also have to have lifestyle management, proper diet,exercise and rest.
Any further query in this regard please do get back to me.

Brief Answer:
could be drug induced

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for getting back to us.

There is always a possibility of such episodes being drug induced only if the previous two episodes were accompanied by similar drug exposure.
In our practice we proceed in a methodical manner by going in for step by step investigation and exclude possibilities. I will recommend the same here.

Until we are able to find the cause, the treatment remains the same - that is proper diet,exercise and rest.
