In brief: Retina-optic nerve

Peripheral vision loss may be a retinal detachment, retinitis pigmentosa, rare drug toxicities, immune retinopathy, retinal infection, and glaucomatous optic neuropathy.
In the brain migraine, and certain types of stroke can cause a loss of peripheral vision. Transient obscurations of vision may be low blood pressure. An eye examination with dilation should identify the cause.
