Transient Visual Loss: When is it Urgent?
Comprehensive Ophthalmology, Neuro-Ophthalmology/Orbit
In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. Valérie Biousse explains how to manage patients with transient visual loss. First, rule out any ocular causes for transient vision loss, she explains. In cases of retinal transient ischemia, it is important to make a quick and accurate diagnosis because patients have a high risk of stroke within the first few days after the onset of visual loss. She advises immediately directing patients to a stroke neurologist. Dr. Biousse and her colleagues published guidelines to manage acute retinal ischemia in the October 2018 issue of Ophthalmology.
