I would recommend your wife see a neurologist. The normal tests are reassuring but she may need some further testing if these symptoms do not improve.
Possibilities include an ischemic event (stroke), transient ischemic attack, a psychogenic disorder (such as an anxiety attack) and a demyelinating disorder such as multiple sclerosis. Most of these would have shown up on an MRI.

Dear Dr. Lowe
Thank you for your reply.
Just I want to tell you that her second eye is now better. She started to see for 50%.
These attacks were hitting her right leg and right hand. This is the first time that her eyes were attacked.
Thanks again for your advice.
