Introduction: Temporary blindness

Fleeting blindness (medical symptom): Any type of vision loss (e.g. blindness, blurred vision, double vision, etc.) is a symptom of great concern.

Certain types of vision changes can be a medical emergency where delay can lead to loss of sight (e.g. for causes such as glaucoma, eye injury, retinal detachment) or loss of life (e.g. for causes such as stroke, TIA, etc.).
