Hi there! My name is Winter and I would like to know what causes temporary blindness in those with wpw? It's only for a few seconds (a min at the most) but I really worried about it. Thank you!

Dear Winter,
If WPW is Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, the seconds of blindness may be from brief decrease in blood flow to the eye or the brain. It may be better for you to ask this question to the people in the cardiology blog.
