Hello and welcome
Your concern is appreciated
You should do complete eye examination including slit lamp examination of the internal structures of the eye specailly retina because such type of symptoma canbe due to pathology of retina. MRI can be done to exclude any intracranial lesion.
Side effects of medication should be considered also.
Hope it helps
