Does anyone have any experience with a type of seizure that causes temporary loss of eyesight? My 12 year old daughter hasn't had a Grand Mal seizure since 2011. We recently started to wean off of her medication (Keppra 500mg). This morning while getting ready for school, she suddenly starts yelling that she can't see and everything was black. After about 45 seconds, the eyesight returned. She was completely coherent and awake through out the ordeal and ended up vomiting afterwards. I remember this happening one other time when she was about 6 years old, and before the Grand Mal seizures started in 2009. I mentioned the previous incidents to her doctors, but they didn't seem to be overly concerned. Since it hadn't happened again, I assumed it wouldn't be a problem again, yet here we are. Is this a form of seizure or perhaps something else? Any advice or similar experiences would be appreciated. Thanks ladies.
