Hello,

In my opinion, since your symptoms are vision-related and are lasting, you should have a brain MRI done.

This to evaluate any small damage (contusion) of the brain or optic nerve.

If no problems in the MRI then you should improve with time.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Erion Spaho, Neurologist, Surgical
