When I got to the neurologist, it turns out that I was overdosing on one of my medication and with the weight playing the role, it was a guess of my own. If your doctor agrees, then you might be on your way in being seizure free!

I too have a similar issue. I myself have complex partial seizures too. I also have vision problem every now and then. I get blurr visions , black out a little for 1-2 seconds , but then I come back into normal vision.
The best way to know about your vision problem is an EEG. That should show what areas , the brain waves are active in. I bet the back of your brain where the brain controls what you see is where some of your brain waves are active.
