Vision Problem only indication I was having a stroke

I'm 70, Male and have had type 1 diabetes for 34 years. I've kept in shape, run a bunch of marathons and other long distance races, and been pretty active in other ways. Recently, I went to take a picture, but had trouble getting the subject in the center of the frame, then I noticed difficulty walking, in low visibility area, as I couldn't see the footpath properly.  Just thought I had low blood glucose, but that was not the case, so went to the ER.

They determined I was in fact having a stroke and began treatment immediately. Otherwise, I felt fine. 

The only issue remaining is that I have no vision to my left side. Has anyone else had this experience? If so, did your vision comer back? What did you do to restore it?

    I am so sorry that you are having to manage this. I can share the information we have on stroke and visual disturbances.  Have you talked to your neurologist about the vision issues? Thanks Katie
