hey there.
it's hard to explain but i've been experienced some kind of vision loss which contunies just 30-40 seconds aproximately, and it has been occured only my right eye. It repeats almost periodically (one or two times in each 5 months) After this blackout, i'm not going to feel any pain or stuff.
my doctor says it could be related with pfo, and then i had a surgery to close pfo (8 months ago). although pfo closure, these blackouts still maintains. i do not know how long i have to wait.
if someone also in a same situation, please help me with this.
thank you.

Welcome to HealngWell.  Wondering if you have seen a a neurologist or an opthamologist for your vision problems ?
It would be worth considering. Please let us know what you find out.

Hi, sounds like you are having occular migraines. Not uncommon after pfo or asd closure. Did you have device closure? I had an ASD closed by device and started experiencing occular migraines (vision disturbances). It was quite scary at first bc I thought my retina was detaching (that happened to a friend of mine). After about 6 months, they subsided to the point that I might have one now once in a blue moon.
