Hole in iris: A peripheral iridectomy is a hole made in the outer portion of the iris, usually under the upper lid, which allows direct fluid passage from the back of the eye in conditions in which it might be obstructed. Most commonly it is for a condition termed acute glaucoma but there are other less common conditions for which it is done. It is usually performed using a laser in an outpatient setting. ...Read more

With no peripheral vision (called tunnel vision) you cannot drive, or easily walk around, etc. ...Read more

Many possibilities: Many things can cause loss of peripheral (side) vision: glaucoma is the most likely. Ocular pressure rise causes vascular and optic nerve damage. Another is a tumor or aneurysm near the pituitary gland, compressing the nerves from the eye as they first join and then re-divide on the way to the back of the brain. Oculo-vascular occlusions can do the same although most often this is only in one eye. ...Read more
Possibly Migraine: This is a somewhat unusual symptom, but sounds like it could possibly be from ocular migraine. No headache or pain is required for that diagnosis. You should have a thorough exam by an ophthalmologist, probably including a visual field exam, to help determine the cause and to rule out certain neurological causes. Depending on the testing results, neuroimaging with a ct scan or MRI may be required. ...Read more
Seek help: Vision may be lost peripherally from disasters within the eye such as retinal detachment or vascular occlusion; or from strokes in the brain in the occipital lobe or the pituitary region; or from systemic vascular collapse, drug toxicity or poisoning.
