In brief: Pseudotumor

Vision loss in pseudotumor is due to compression of the optic nerve.
Recovery is the rule but if the condition is unrecognized, or lasts a very long time without treatment, then the vision may not fully recover. It is important to get the cerebrospinal fluid pressure lowered as soon as possible. A neurologist or neuro-ophthalmologist should be consulted for this.
