occlusion seems like the answer, without pain, curtain, age, etc. it would be harder to say. you'd prolly have an image with such sparse details.

Wouldn't occlusion cause the visual field defect of the whole eye, not just a part of it as it mentions (right inferior). For that reason i would go with retinal detachment... it is also painless and could be only detached at a certain point, hence causing only a partial visual field defect of that eye... instead of the whole visual field.
