I had a scare today. I was driving and I lost peripheral vision in my left eye. I could not see my own hand held up till it was almost directly in front of me. It lasted about 30-45 seconds. About an hour later I had tunnel vision. Blood sugar was normal at 94. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this?

I've never experienced anything like this at all, but I would highly suggest getting to an ophthalmologist as soon as you possibly can, this could be serious business. I wish you the best of health in 2015. HUGS, Heidi

As someone who has experienced more than his share of vision problems … get in to see an Ophthalmologist immediately if not sooner.

Agreed Steve!
My late wife "Jem" started having vision problems when she was 14 (so she said) and started with the tunnel vision (retinitis pigmentosa) which progressed to total blindness, not even being able to tell if it was light or dark out. She remained like that until her death at 55 years. (she died due to heart problems brought on by her Lupis [SLE]) So I am quite aware of the gift of sight.
