What is caused by blackout vision?

See Doctor ASAP!

Vision
A blackout of vision is a worrisome symptom and you should see your medical doctor and your eye doctor right away. Transient blackout of vision in one eye could be several things including a momentary loss of circulation to the eye, while simultaneous blackout of vision in both eyes could be due to reduced circulation to the brain or other neurologic causes. SEE YOUR DOCTOR ASAP!

Drinking with hep C causes blackouts ?

Stop drinking!

Alcohol
It's probably the drinking causing the blackouts, not the hepatitis C. But drinking when you have hepatitis C is a very bad idea, because alcohol--even in modest quantities--speeds up the progression of hepatitis C to serious liver disease, including cirrhosis and liver cancer. And if you're drinking enough to black out, you're clearly drinking a lot.
