Can 'temporary blindness' last 3 weeks?

Posted by curiouswon @curiouswon, Jun 5, 2019

A person who joined our social circle claims they fell off a bike, and as a result went blind. But miraculously, their vision was restored after 3 weeks. Several people in the group want to steer clear of this person, as they believe them to be a total liar--but is it actually medically possible (if not probable) that one would 'go totally blind' for three weeks, then have their vision become fully restored?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Eye Conditions Support Group.


People can have vision restored after a trauma with surgery. I’m assuming this person did not have surgery and that it was a miracle? I would be skeptical too. Temporary blindness lasts minutes or a half hour ....3 weeks? But then I’m not a Doctor . I would be asking a gazillion questions just out of curiosity if I knew this individual.
