In most instances, the disorder resolves within a few weeks with return to prior sharpness of vision (acuity). In a small number of individuals, permanent visual loss may occur due to the creation of new blood vessels in the eye (subretinal neovascularization). Other people may have long-term symptoms such as a partial loss of vision or blind spot (scotomata) or distorted vision (metamorphopsia).
