Vision Loss: Vision loss as a result of soft tissue trauma to the eyeball (globe) is likely not recoverable. In cases where the eyeball is intact, and the nerve is simply "stunned" as a result of trauma, there is a decent chance (with treatment) that eyesight can be recovered, but not with the type of loss you are suggesting here.

A 27-year-old member asked:

What can I do during pregnancy to remove the appearance of stretch marks?

Not much you can do : Stretch marks are common and genetics play a big role. If your mom had them you probably will too. You can change your "jeans" but not your "genes." try not to gain more than the recommended amounts of weight. Many people use over-the-counter skin lotion. This keeps the skin healthy and decreases itching but may not prevent stretch marks.

I'm inquiring about mole removal. It is something I would like to remove and wonder if there are any side effects, and how much for the removal?

See a dermatologist: There are different ways to remove moles. It is important to have your dermatologist evaluate your mole first as some melanomas look like benign moles. If suspicious for melanoma, your dermatologist will biopsy it by fully removing the lesion. If it is raised and benign, your dermatologist may choose to shave excise it. The degree of scarring depends on the location, technique and genetics.

Can adapt: Low vision or blind patients can adapt using their other senses. Loss of vision in one eye or monocular vision results in loss of depth perception but patients adapt by detecting other visual cues from their environment.

See your doctor: If this has been going on a long time, it is likely migraines but if it is relatively new, see your doctor to make sure it is not something more dangerous. Also, he or she may be able to help you either prevent these episodes, make them less frequent, or at least treat them so they resolve sooner.
