Ocular Migraine or TIA

I suffered partial, temporary vision loss in my left eye for about 2 minutes.

The bottom third of my view went black for about a minutes, then slowly cleared up from left to right over the next minute.

I went to the emergency room fearing the worst. After a battery of tests, the diagnosis came down to TIA (transient ischemic attack) or an ocular migraine. Because I was very low risk for TIA and there was no evidence of TIA, the doctors called it an ocular migraine.

Has anyone else experienced the same vision loss?
