I had sudden peripheral vision loss/blurred vision in one eye. Lasted 10 seconds. Panicked and got a bit dizzy. 8 months pregnant. Was this a tia?

Unlikely. Tia's are older folks problems and extraordinarity rare in your age group. More likely you had a type of migraine in which the vision in the right half (or left half) of both eyes went out. The rapid recovery makes this more likely. If it happens again, cover one and then the other eye and see if it is happening in both eyes. Meanwhile prepare for the end of your pregnancy best for the baby. Read more...
